Windows Services for Unix + Permission denied


I am curious if anyone has run into a problem I am having. I have installed Windows Services for Unix version 3.5 on a Windows XP Pro version 2002 with service pack 2.

I can ceate an NFS shared folder with anonymous access, all machines, Read/Write and root access allowed. I can mount the folder from my QNX computer but I can not read any files or create any files. I get the following errors:

ls: readdir of ‘.’ failed (Operation not permitted)

sh: cannot create test.txt permission denied.

The strange thing is that I have a 2nd XP machine setup the same way, and I can mount NFS shares, read and write no problem from this QNX computer and a 2nd QNX computer to this XP computer. This is leading me to think it is something with this new XP but I don’t know what it is.

Thanks for any suggestions.


If your underline windows drive uses NTFS, you need to make sure the NTFS permission is setup properly for the shared directory.
