Re: [PLUG] Help with NFS Share


I tried both IP addresses and putting the server name in the hosts file of the client and referencing that name. I get the same error in both cases. It seems to me it has to be a permissions issue on the client, because I can connect just fine through Windows file manager for example. Thus I do not think it is a problem on the server. 

I have been playing around with folder permissions, ownership, etc. but so far no real difference. I am no doubt looking in the wrong place.


In the example you posted (OP), you were not manually specifying allowed IPs in the server's exports file. Have you tried doing that?

I felt the same way about NFS, and I do think it is drop-dead simple to set up when you're in an all-nix environment. Samba does allow easily sharing cross platform, though, if that's of any interest to you. But you're right, on a home network, if you're using Linux all around, NFS can be a real breeze.

The current configuration problems notwithstanding, naturally.
