cannot get nfs mounts to work
FYI: I am very new to linux (about 6 months).
I have been trying to simply use nfs to setup one server and one client. Server is RedHat 6.1 with 2.4.5 kernal. The client is RedHat 7.0.
I have tcp ip working to the best of my knowledge (can ping back and forth and telnet, etc.) I have followed the NFS-HowTO to setup the server. Rpcinfo -p shows I have all the services running I think I need and I can also access this list by running rpcinfo -p <server> from the client.
I can showmount -e <sever> from the server and it shows the output of my exports file just fine. I have it setup to export / to 172.16.0.0/255.255.0.0.
No matter what I try I cannot mount anything on the client. I cannot use showmount -e <server> either.
All I get is the usual mount:RPC:timed out error or the client just hangs there.
What am I doing wrong?
