Trouble with NFS cant figure out why on SLES 10


I've been working on trying to get NFS to work for a long time but with no success. I can get it to connect to itself and share with itself but not with my other computer running the same distro on the same lan. I used yast to configure the server and client with the firewall off. I've gone through every tutorial I could find and no success. If you need more info let me know. And if anyone has had trouble like this and can give me a little guidance to correcting it. Thank you so much for any help.

What do you have in your exports file?

For some reason, after upgrading and rebooting, I had the same problem with a previously working nfs setup. I changed the /etc/exports wildcard from "192.168.1.*" to "192.168.1.0/255.255.255.128" which fixed the problem. If you have an /etc/networks entry, you may be able to use the network name instead but I haven't tried it.

exports file says "/root/Desktop/share *(fsid=0,ro,sync,root_squash)"


I can mount it on the client by typing it into the terminal.

Why are you sharing a directory in root's home directory. That doesn't make any sense. Only root has access, and should be connecting via ssh.

lol. Im going to change it now. It probably doesn't make any sense because I am completely new to running my own linux server, but thats the reason why I posted in the linux newbie forum


fixed that and it still wont find any server.
anyone have a simple step by step guide so I can try it again.

OpenSUSE's YaST2 has an nfs-server wizard that makes configuring the exports file a snap. SLED probably has the same wizard.
