Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have ported linux on my board and have given static ip address to both the board and the linux machine. Also they are connected to each other through the cross over cable. The ipaddress of the linux machine is 192.168.10.20 and the board is 192.168.10.30. With this configuration, i am able to take root file system from the linux machine. Now the problem is when i am not connecting the two machines with the cross over cable instead connecting them through the network, then i am not able to fetch the root file system from the linux machine.
Also the nfsd port it is not able to find whereas it is able to get the mountd port number. All the dameons are running in the the linux machine, properly.

Also i have checked the ethernet packets on the linux machine.
First i captured when the two were connected with the cross-over cable. After arp-request,
