ya,  I am still looking.

And all that i could find is only trialware or cripple ware.  I can't find anything that is free.  As stated earlier.  There are some that are crippled and is useable but wont have all the features you want.  So I think that you may be out of luck.  I will keep searching, but have come up with nothing free.

Try these ones on: http://download.com.com/3120-20-0.html?qt=NFS+Client&tg=dl-2001

some are to buy.  Some say free to try.

Here are some sites on where to get free a free Evaluation copy etc:
http://www.xlink.com/eval.htm
http://www.osinet.fr/xlink/eval.htm
http://www.softpile.com/Utilities/File_Management/Review_07803_index.html

It may be hard to find a full version or non evaluation version since this is copyrighted material.  If you really want it you may need to purchase it.  Since this site does not support software piracy or Warez of any kind.

I need one that's freeware. I need to get around the 10 user connection limit in sharing windows directorys on windows workstations. Any other suggestion? I need to be able to map a windows drive over the network.

mathiasf,

Sorry there is no such thing for that software being free especially to get around the 10 user connection limit.  You will have to purchase it.  Like I said EE does not support piracy or warez.  So if that is what you are looking for or if this is for a company you work for, you best find a way to purchase it for your company otherwise your company could be in big trouble for using a pirated version.

Why is that?

That can't be correct!

There is no restrictions in the connections made over TCP/IP. And there is nothing that says that you can't develop your own NFS-client so what's the problem?

I've found a free NFS server that works fine all I need now is a free client and my problem will be solved.

I would check the Linux sites for an NFS client. Many times they will also do a WIndows version in addition to a Linux version.
Start with Redhat etc.

I hope this helps !

mathiasf,

I searched for them and I could only come with those above that I have listed.  So if there are such beasts out there i can not find them.  If i find some i will be glad to post it here.  Sorry if I can't find anything right now.

Its certainly possible that there is no such thing available for free.  You may want to try installing Microsoft's SFU (Services For Unix):
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/sfu/default.asp

It is $99 but would be a total package.

Free NFS CLient(S):

http://www.danlan.com/   near top of page

http://vip.hpnc.com/~cbbrowne/nfs.html 

another free NFS client, I think it contains a link to the above site actually but I'm not sure and the page won't load right now, it's up and down, but just i case it's different...

http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Network_and_Internet/Misc__Networking_Tools/NFS_client_server_for_windows_ProNFS_Download.html

SAYS it's free, but I beleive it's shareware, I didn't download it to find out.

Well, thats what I found for now, only did a quick search...will try again later for another...

Cheers.

The danlan one is a single user version.  Non commercial freeware.  I don't think it supports 10 license.  but you can try it.  It's non commercial.  Are you going to be hooking this up for personal use (home) or commercial (business)?  That will also make a big difference in which software to get.

the freedownloader, you can download for free but it cost 20 bux to register it.

20$ ain't to bad..what is the purpose of the "free" statement. I guess in today's economy 20$ is almost as free as it gets...even a home user with no need for the app might buy it at $20...

How outrageous that someone would want to get paid for devoting probably hundreds of hours of their own time developing a complex piece of software!  The nerve of some people...

Yeah...almost as bad as me, asking for pay at the end of every week...youda thunk someone woulda written one under the GNU license agreemnt but apparently there is little or no call for a free one? Most people would rather pay for it I think...
