Apparently Cygwin is meant to include an NFS server component. But, having tried numerous sources from the available list (when running Cygwin's Setup.exe) I cannot find the NFS Server anywhere. Is it still available somewhere or no longer part of Cygwin itself?


It's only in the 32bit version of Cygwin at present, so I assume you're installing and running the 64bit one.

Not everything has been ported to the 64bit builds.

As you can see from this package search, the nfs-server package is present in the x86 build, but from this search, not in the x86_64.

  • no longer available even in 32Bit Cygwin :( – Gili Nachum May 6 '16 at 18:27
  • Yep, looks like it got dropped. – EightBitTony May 6 '16 at 19:56

Two NFS Servers has been ported to Cygwin 64 at the begin of May
