Enabling exFAT in Ubuntu

Reference: http://apcmag.com/how-to-enable-exfat-in-ubuntu.htm

Add the repository

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat
sudo apt-get install fuse-exfat

​Mount the drive manually

cd /media
sudo -s
mkdir usbdrive
mount -t exfat /dev/sdd1 usbdrive

Installing NFS

NFS is the preferred way of connecting to drives on other machines in Linux. To install it, simply type the following command in your terminal:


sudo apt-get install nfs-common

Check to see what drives are available to be mounted from external server

showmount -e

Mounting the NFS drive manually

mount -t nfs -o proto=tcp,port=2049 nfs-server:/ /mnt

You can take the output of the showmount command to mount the drive. For example, if you want have a server on and the folder that is made available via the NFS on that server is /somedrive, and you want to mount it locally on the folder called /mylocaldrive, you’d put in the following command:

sudo mount -t nfs -o proto=tcp,port-2049 /mylocaldrive

Mounting the NFS drive on boot up

Add the following line in your /etc/fstab file

nfs-server:/   /mnt   nfs    auto  0  0
