Installing NFS (Network File System) on Ubuntu 22.04

NFS (Network File System) is a distributed file system protocol that allows users to access files on remote hosts as if they were local.

sudo apt install nfs-kernel-server
sudo mkdir /shared
sudo nano /etc/exports
/shared (rw,sync,no_subtree_check)
sudo systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server
sudo ufw allow nfs
sudo ufw allow nfsd
