I was indeed. The statement "all the folders you get in sunfish" made
absolutely no sense, from the perspective of someone who uses Sunfish to
access all of the work that I do on RISC OS.

Ditto. Actually, it can be /any/ name, IIRC, because you configure it in the

NFS has no concept of passwords, so you'll be fine: Sunfish doesn't use

The UID and GID are the file owners on the Linux side. You set them once in
Sunfish, to make sure that the files you save into it get assigned to the
correct user at the other end when configuring the share... then never see

As I said, NFS has no concept of passwords. You restrict who can connect to
the server via IP address ranges (restrict it to your local subnet) and (in
a "real" setup) by who can get on to that subnet in the first place.

The problem being that it's *not* complex in comparison to LM98: you edit
the settings in a text file, and double-click that to put the share on the
Maybe two text files, as there's the filer and the share itself, but even so
it's not that difficult.
Pre-ARMv7, it was all point-and-click in the GUI, but unfortunately
rebuilding that for modern hardware is proving tricky because it appears to
rely on being able to use an obsolete compiler suite.
