Windows 10 – NFS Mapping Error – Network Error – 53 Type ‘NET HELPMSG 53’ for more information

Hi everyone

If you find yourself with such error when you try to map a network drive in NFS;

Network Error – 53

Type ‘NET HELPMSG 53’ for more information

Please know that some tips exist to diagnose the error.

1- Make sure the NFS client is installed on the Windows 10.

2 – Make sure to use that registry fix if the mapping is on a restricted port;

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ClientforNFS\CurrentVersion\Default\

UseReservedPorts := 0 (or 1) – DWORD32

3 – Make sure to use that registry fix to match the mapping GID/UID;

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ClientforNFS\CurrentVersion\Default\

AnonymousGid := XXXX (usually 1001)

AnonymousUid := XXXX (usually 1001)

4 – In the linux server, make sure the /etc/exports is setting the insecure option.

NFS server has an option of working in insecure mode (Allowing higher incoming port numbers). Windows NFS client often uses higher port numbers. You can enable this option by adding an option to the share
Example: /share *(insecure,rw) ¹

 

As you can see it’s generic tips and of course disabling each firewall can’t hurt to diagnose 🙂
