Hey all, got a question about NFS (Network File System).
I'm able to mount the exported fs's no problem, but they're read only. Is there any way I can change them to read/write, or use symlinks to jump off the export root to the actual root? Now, I know I can use dd to copy the files onto my system and then make them, but thats no fun. Ideally, I'd like to link a normal file to the password file and be able to cat it out, or (since the host in question has rlogind active) upload a .rhost's file.
BTW, I'm using the nfsshell package for this and am able to set my UID and GUID to 0 via the uid and gid commands, respectivley.
Also, the OS running on the box in question is AIX 4.x.
