I followed the tutorial at http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/NFSonWindows. I get stuck at the point where I need to enter user name mapping within local computer. When I click on "Show user maps" or "Show group maps" I get a message "Unable to access User name mapping server No maps could be obtained".
