Re: [PLUG] Network shares


I do not think the problem is on the server side as I am able to connect
with a windows client.


How about running exportfs as root from the nfs server.  Perhaps your
server is not actually exporting the filesystems (ie running exportfs
-a).  If your distro changed how this is configured that would explain
a sudden change.

Make sure both the client and server have NFS support built into their
kernels or the appropriate modules loaded (zcat /proc/config.gz | grep

NFS is unusually fussy and pretty feature-weak on top of that.  I'm
really amazed that nobody has come up with something better that is
standardized - samba is probably the best alternative but it isn't a
great fit for unix.
