showmount -e issue


Hi gais,
im using rhel6.3 server
and rhel desktop on vmware on another pc.

on rhel desktop
it gives
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# showmount -e 192.168.1.136
clnt_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - Timed out

[root@localhost client]# rpcinfo -p 192.168.1.136
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host
thats server's ip, and i run this command from the rheldesktop
is this correct step? thx

No route to host means that your local host is unable to talk to the address 192.168.1.136 for some reason.

First diagnose your local network, "ifconfig -a"

If you do not have an attachment to a 192.168.1.xxx network, then that's problem #1.

If you have an address on that network, or a viable class B or C address, then try a ping. Try first pinging the router, "ping 192.168.1.1", if that doesn't work. Ping your own IP address, which is the address shown by the ifconfig command. Note if your address is something like 169.<something>.<something>.<something> then that's a DHCP failed address assignment and it's not a real address. A real address is typically 192.x.y.z, or 10.x.y.z, but there are others. The "self" address is 127.0.0.1 which means "loopback", you can ping that address to verify that your IP stack is running at all.

If you have a local IP problem, then you need to resolve that before you can talk to that remote system. If your system is fine from an IP and network connection status, then perhaps you cannot reach the remote system. Ping that system's IP address, and also try ping -R to show the route.

Check the firewall at both ends
Code:
 cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables
On the server end
Code:
service nfs status 

exportfs -v 

rpcinfo -p

showmount -e localhost

Re iptables; its a first match system, so on the INPUT chain, the REJECT rule must come last
Code:
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 2049 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 111 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

-A FORWARD -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
you'll need
Code:
service iptables restart
after changing that file.
Technically its not really a service, but its treated like one...
