OpenVMS 6.1 Windows Share Access

Would someone be able to assist in finding a freeware alternative to your Truegrid NFS Server for Windows 95/NT?
We are upgrading our system and need the ability for a Windows 2000 Pro and higher to communicate via TCP/IP to shared folders using NFS.
Our OpenVMS v6.1 computer is set up to create reports from our MRP system and place them in a shared folder.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Since you need NFS client on Windows, I assume you have TCP/IP on VMS. It could be Multiware, UCX (TCP/IP services), Pathworks ...

Pathworks: Use SMB/CIFS support integrated and create shared directories. Drop NFS usage.
UCX: Try Samba and again SMB/CIFS shared directories

Windows XP: Has so called "Services for UNIX", check NFS during installation and you are on.
Windows 2000: There is no good freeware NFS client as far as I know.
SFU work on WIndows 2000 as well.

Thanks.  It took us a little while to learn Unix Services for Windows but that solved our issue.
