reason given by server: permission denied


My distro is mandrake 9.1.

I am trying to share /usr/bin with three other linux boxes also running mandrake 9.1.

I can ping all the machines, and they can all ping each other. I edited the exports file as follows "/usr/bin 192.168.1.3 #exporting /usr/bin to one machine for now"

I then ran exportfs.

problem is that when i try to mount /usr/bin, I get the error message "mount failed, reason given by server: Permission denied.

I went back to the server and chmod 777 /usr/bin. but still the same error message.

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance

Scott

Whit that line, only a computer whit IP-adres 192.168.1.3 can access/mount the share.

whit a line like this:

/something *(ro,sync)

everyone can mount/access the share(note that it is still read only due to the 'ro'. making that 'rw' makes it writable)

Do you have NFS in Mandrake as I do with RH? If so, have you restarted them? I had the same error and did the following:

/etc/init.d/nfs start
/etc/init.d/nfslock start

I have a couple of other comands but I'm not sure if they are relevant to your flavour.
