Acls over nfs problem

Hy all,
I've a CentOS4.1 as a nfs client and RHEL4 as a nfs server.
With another nfs client (RHEL4) I can use the acl over nfs, but I don't undestand why the nfs client in CentOS isn't be able to use the acls.
Whe I execute setfacl I prompt the message "This op. is not supported".
On the other hand, in the CentOS nfs client I can manage acls in other folders that aren't mounted over nfs.
Is necessary to install any patch or rpm packet to enable acls ove nfs?
Thanks in advance.

Never used the setfacl command before but why not just restrict the exports on the server? Give us an example of what you are trying to do.

Hello twantrd.
That I need in the nfs client is to be able to manage the acls. The sefacl in not necessary, but the getfacl yes to control the access permissions to the exports.
When I execute getfacl in the client, I don't see the acls.

I believe that I need to install nfs_acl module in the CentOS client, but I don't know the packet where it is.
