I am looking for a lightweight and simple NFS server that I could have running on Windows XP which allows some other NFS clients to connect to it. If possible, it should be free of charge.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can install the Windows Services for UNIX. Version 3.5 has been made available for legacy versions of Windows free of charge and it includes an NFS server and client nicely integrated into the system.

We've used this on several machines and it seems to work pretty good. You may have to do a little tuning if you're primarily transferring very large files, but otherwise it's pretty straight forward. – palehorse Jul 21 '09 at 21:37
