How do configure NFS between a Unix box and WinServer 2003?

This is what I'm trying to accomplish:
1. Create a shared directory on Win2003 server
2. With Hummingbird NFS Software (Installed on Windows 2003 server) set file permissions so that AIX user can access the Windows shared drive.  To AIX users, it would seem as if ther are accessing a unix directory.

What settings do I have to put in  place on the unix system?

1) Microsoft SFU is the easiest. Just share and you are ready.
2) Who cares. Its so expensive you should ask support.

No special settings on UNIX, just mount.

Please see the links below for installing and configuring NFS on Windows:


To mount the Windows NFS share, just use mount command (man mount for the exact syntax)
