You may want to read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
Had you provided what OS, version, exact error messages, you may have
received more detailed instructions.
I have to mount it as follows:
mount 192.168.0.1:/home/share/movies /mnt
You may want to have a terminal on the server and client machine running
tail -f /var/messages
when trying the mount command.
That way you have a better chance of seeing who cannot do what and be
able to provide possible messages which may help someone
troubleshoot your problem.
Assuming nfs and portmap daemon/services are working/running, possible
failure points would be firewall, tcpwrappers, config file /etc/exports.
my server (pm80) is running Mandriva linux 2008.0 and has
$ cat /etc/exports
$ cat /etc/hosts.allow has
portmap: LOCAL, .home.test, 192.168.1.131, 192.168.1.0/24
nfsd: LOCAL, .home.test, 192.168.1.131, 192.168.1.0/24
ALL: LOCAL, .home.test, 192.168.1.131, 192.168.1.0/24
both server/clients have the same /etc/hosts, and
$ grep hosts: /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts: files dns
$ tail -13 /etc/hosts.deny
spawn ( \
/bin/echo -e "\n\
TCP Wrappers\: Connection Refused\n\
By\: $(uname -n)\n\
Process\: %d (pid %p)\n\
" | /bin/mail -s \"$(uname -n)\" root ) & : DENY
#*********************** end host.deny ********************************
The above sends root tcpwrapper failures if tcpwappers is enabled.
on the client,
$ grep nfs /etc/fstab
pm80:/local /nfs nfs user,noauto,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr,tcp 0 0
Possible commands which may help debugging:
other nfs tools: nfsddebug, nfsstat, nfsdebug
Possible daemon/services: nfs, nfslock, portmap, nfs-common, nfs-server
