Question NFS Permissions Problem

Hi I have a hopefully minor problem. I set up NFS and have all my mounts sorted and can read all files on the mount but can not write or delete any files on the mount. I was wondering would anybody have any sugestions?

Thanks for any help,

Check that you havm't set readonly on /etc/exports on server
and also on client you havn't mounted readonly(!)
also check uids. if the file on the server is with another uid other than root
client root cann't edit the file.

Thanks for the help, just to check
In my /etc/exports on the server i have

/home/tmp *(all_squash,sync)

on the client the mount is /mnt/tmp nfs soft,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid 0 0

Does this seem ok? The uids are ok.
