    Problems with NFS

    So I'm attempting to setup an NFS share with all my mp3's on it. Simple right? wrong!

    From what I can gather I have the server setup right, FROM the server I can mount the nfs share to another directory, using the nfs mount options and it works just fine.

    From the client on the other hand.... when I try to mount, I get an mount : rpc timeout

    yet I can do rpcinfo -p <servername> and I get all the correct information back..... help!?!?!

    Check out this how-to it's great! i got nfs working in minutes with it.

    http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/docs/HOWTO/NFS-HOWTO


    7.2.File requests hang or timeout waiting for access to the file.

    This usually means that the client is unable to communicate with the server.
    See Symptom 3 letter b.




    Make sure the /etc/exports file is set up right

    It IS all set up right. I can mount it via NFS FROM the server.

    I had problems with NFS ever since the 2.4 kernel came out. I use Samba for everything now and it works great for 'nix to 'nix and 'nix to Windows.
