the user id and group id on server and client both match as well. and in the mounting code i noticed the client ip changed
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.1.32,clientaddr=192.168.1.5'
thats the reason i reserved the ip's i noticed that and changed the ip to the appropriate one that the exports file states.
ok so i got it to mount on my sabayon client 192.168.1.127
[CODE]mount -v -o 'vers=3' 192.168.1.32:/home/bludiescript/tv-shows /home/hiawatha/Desktop/stuff/sabayon_tv-shows
mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon
mount.nfs: timeout set for Sat Jul 16 15:39:21 2011
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=3,addr=192.168.1.32'
mount.nfs: prog 100003, trying vers=3, prot=6
mount.nfs: trying 192.168.1.32 prog 100003 vers 3 prot TCP port 2049
mount.nfs: prog 100005, trying vers=3, prot=17
mount.nfs: trying 192.168.1.32 prog 100005 vers 3 prot UDP port 56967
192.168.1.32:/home/bludiescript/tv-shows on /home/hiawatha/Desktop/stuff/sabayon_tv-shows type nfs (rw,vers=3)
now the issue is on the mac when i do the command [CODE]sudo showmount -e it give a rpc authentication failure.[CODE] rpcinfo -p gives[CODE] rpcinfo -p
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection refused
should i now make a new thread on a mac forum?
