nfs export not working under sabayon

Hello everybody

I try to share some of my directories by nfs.
My /etc/exports looks as follows:


after that i did /etc/init.d/nfs restart.
showmount -e localhost shows:

Export list for localhost:

But as soon as i try to mount my filesystem from, my nfs server denies access.

The same procedure worked fine on Ubuntu, Suse, Debian.

I am using Sabayon (which is related to Gentoo)

Any ideas?

Check if any firewall is running on the box.

From the remote box where you are trying to mount , try the following commands :

showmount -e

rpcinfo -p

And see if all ports are open properly.


mount, server, gentoo, nfs, sabayon
