How do I enable NFS server on Windows 7 ?

I installed "Windows Services for UNIX" via "Turn Windows features on and off" in Control Panes. But I don't know how to launch and configure server. One hour of intensive googling didn't help me either :(

I see that there is nfsadmin.exe in System32 folder of the system. When I launch it as 'nfsadmin.exe server' it gives me error

Service 'NfsService' was not found.

If you installed the Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX, the tool you install is probably to connect to a NFS server. After Windows 2000, to have a NFS server I believe you would have to install the services for Unix on a version of Windows Server.

That said, I believe there are third party NFS servers that should work with Windows 7. Unfortunately, I don't have any personal experience with any so I can't recommend one over another.
