NFS Problem - UnSolved


Having problem with NFS and can't find anything in the threads which addresses my problem.

I am using Gentoo. Set /etc/exports to:
/home/fio/mp3/ XXXX(async,all_squash)
(XXXX = the correct IP).

Ran /etc/init.d/portmap start, nfs start on the server side,
and the same on the client side.

When I try to mount on the client side (mount -t nfs XXXX:/home/fio/mp3 /mnt/temp)
I manage to mount OK.

But when I try doing anything in /mnt/temp (like ls, cd or whatever) the shell simply
freezes until I do from another shell umount -f /mnt/temp.

Don't know how to solve this.. Samba works fine, but I rather use NFS..

Appreciate any help,

You don't need the deamon on the client and add (rw) to permit full access, like (rw,async).
