exporting one NFS folder to another NFS and exporting it....


OK, everyone I have an odd question. I have two networks that cannot communicate with each other because of security issues. One is a 204.0.0.0 network and the other is internal at 158.0.0.0. I have computers in the 204.0.0.0 network that need files from an NFS in the 158.0.0.0 network. Both of my Dell Poweredge 2650's have two NICs. I have connected the two servers to each other via eth1 and given them private IPs of 192.168.100.10 and 192.168.100.11.

Alright here we go... I have the folder exported on 192.168.100.10 (the 158.0.0.0 network) and I am trying to mount it into the exported folder on the 192.168.100.11 (the 204.0.0.0 network). I keep getting permission denied. I have change the /etc/exports files to reflect the 192.168.100.0 network.

Is it possible to mount an NFS in an exported folder? And, if not, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can go about doing this withough copying all the files. I would just copy all the files, but I do not want to have multiples of the same file.

Thanks everyone

OK, I have one change to add to this. I am not having a problem mounting the NFS (192.168.100.10 and 158.0.0.0) into the exported folder on the 192.168.100.11 (204.0.0.0) computer. I am having a problem getting other computers on the 204.0.0.0 network to mount it. It gives me permission denied.

I know this is so confusing, but please help out.

Can you please post your /etc/exports file and /etc/hosts.allow file from your nfs servers and also ifconfig -a o/p from your nfs client and servers.

I appreciate your help. But for security reasons, I would not be able to post enough pertinent information from those files to bother putting them up.
