IRIX has a pcnfsd (unsupported), its on the NFS CD. Unfortunately this one is not stable (hangs after several mounts) on IRIX 5.x
Otherwise you may use samba to mount (map) IRIX from W95 via SMB protocol.

On the SGI side it should be easy, just run ftpd or mountd

If you install Samba on your IRIX system then you will be able to view your unix system from any windows 95 PC with TCP/IP and "client for microsoft networks" installed, it will appear in your Network Neighbourhood just like another windows 95 PC. You can also view any shares from a windows machine using smbclient. This will also give you the ability to print between the 2 machines, for more info take a look at:
