Mount command fails with connection timed out....port issue?
I am trying to give read access to a data directory one one linux host (Host A)to an application on another linux host(Host B).
I plan to mount the data directory /abc/data of Host A on Host B. The steps I followed were.
On Host A
As root, Edit /etc/exports and add an entry as
/mnt/dataA <HostA FQDN>(ro)
Restart nfs service as
service nfs stop
service nfs start
Mount the source directory as
mount <HostA FQDN>:/abc/data /mnt/dataA nfs ro,rsize=8192,hard,intr,nfsvers=3,tcp 1 2
This configuration runs elsewhere (between Hosts C & D), but fails here. I suspect it is a firewall issue, but not sure what port request I should ask my netops team to open.
Any advise is greatly appreciated.
