Access to NFS over SSH Tunnel

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I would like to gain access to a NFS share in a remote network from a
windows machine. I have performed the following steps:

1. Downloaded and installed a NFS client for windows (Microsoft Windows
Services for UNIX 3.5)
2. Created a loopback adapter at
3. Opened a ssh connection to a server in the target network with Putty
(I could also connect directly to the machine hosting the NFS share).
4. Added a tunnel from L10.0.0.1:2049 to 193.X.X.X:2049 and from
L10.0.0.1:111 to 193.X.X.X:111. (193.X.X.X is the ip address of the nfs
server in the remote network)
5. Finally registered a NFS network with as my broadcast
address (My Network Places > NFS Network > Add NFS LAN)

Since it doesn't work I guess that I have missed some important point.
Any ideas?

Best regards
