NFS clients for Win9x PC's at any sensible price (ie freeware or shareware)
seem to
be non-existent. I have Xlink on this machine, and it works well, but why
aren't a swag of free/shareware ones kicking around on the net is anyones
I don't recall seeing any free/shareware DOS/Win3x clients either.

I run Multinet 3.2 Rev B NFS Server on a 6000 under VMS 6.0 here,
and I have a VMS 6.2 Vaxstation that has UCX installed for tinkering.
What is the problem you are having getting the NFS server to work?
