  1. re-exporting cifs or nfs mount

    Hi everybody!

    i'm tryng to export one ressource which is a cifs mount point.
    In other word, on computer A, i first mount a cifs ressource via a
    samba or win server, say S. Give /export
    to this cifs mount point.
    So now, a try to export /export repertory to a nfs client, say C.
    This export work well, but on client C, a can't import /export
    ressource from A.
    Can someone known if this configuration is possible at first and in
    this case when can'i do it.

    Thanks

    Kwame

    This is called proxy export. In general it is forbidden.
    There are programs that do it but no such program is a
    part of any default distribution of any UNIX-like.
