    I would very much like to be able to share a directory with some VM's I am running on my MacBook Pro. Fusion includes a share capability that works fine, as long as it is okay to always mount it as /mnt/xxfs and as long as you do not need hard links. Not so clever. The build I needed to do required hard links. On to NFS. After editing /etc/exports, I could see the mount points from my VM's, but rpc info reported that the nfs interface was version 2 and the OS I was running presumes a server with an interface less than a couple of decades old.

    So, how can I either get nfsd to advertise that it can cope with NFS version 4 (or 3) protocols, or else install something that can? Thank you so much!

    NSFv4 is supported. According to the man page mount_nfs, you should be able to set a version number, 2, 3, or 4. Not dealing with NSF this is just a guess. Perhaps a post on the Developer forum will yield a better answer.

    NFS SERVER. mount_nfs is client code.
