Little off topic, but you'll have best luck with NFS if you use it
alongside a centralized user management system like NIS / Kerberos. If
you're concerned about security, check out authentication options for NFS4
too - otherwise anyone on your network can spoof any user just by creating
a user with matching UIDs.
