Mounting nfs share from Fedora 14 to Fedora 5

Hi All,

After about a year break, I am back on LQ

I have nfs share shared from Feodra 14 machine, with /etc/exports having below content

If I try to mount this on another Fedora 14 machine it mounts without any issue.
mount -t nfs  test
If I try to mount this share on Fedora 5 machine (I can't upgrade this machine for some reason), it gives following error.

[root@FC5 user1]# mount -t nfs  test
mount to NFS server '' failed.
[root@FC5 user1]# mount -t nfs -o nfsvers=3 test
mount to NFS server '' failed: possible invalid protocol.
Anticipating some help !

I got the answer, I have to specify nfs4 as switch to mount.

This works !

mount -t nfs4 test
