Question NFS share is mounted as read-only even if write permissions are set

Hello to everybody, under Fedora 12 i try to configure NFS server. On the server machine i configured the share folder as:
restart server /sbin/service nfs restart
make exportfs
on client machine
mount share as:
mkdir /mnt/nfs
mount /mnt/nfs
it mounted successful.
However if open the folder /mnt/nfs, i have only read-only permissions.
- The same as if set the remote user as local system user:
- The same if set the user to folder on server as nfsnobody, after mount it on client i get the same problem. The permissions of folder /test are Write and delete (777) and for all enclosed files

On client machine:
mount /mnt/nfs

That is rather strange I can conclude that your server is
I would think you exports file is incorrect.
Then you only allow your server itself to mount it.

Are there any other access restrictions? Like attributes?

Yes! The problem was in Host name address.
The client ip was:
Server ip address:
The problem was in the following line:
I thought that Host must be the host name of server, on which the /test folder is exists.
However it must be - the hosts permitted to access folder! So the ip must be ip of client (
So lets assume the problem as closed.
