nfs shares and permissions


I have been trying to set up a nfs share between 2 ubuntu machines. I can set up the share easily however I can not write to the share and keep getting permission denied errors eg "touch: cannot touch file Read-only file system"
my /etc/exports on my server machine is as follows:

/media/music_safe (rw,sync)

I have created a directory on my client machine and made it rwx all, I have also made the directory on my server machine rwx all. What have I done wrong?

Fixed it, the answer was to use the no_root_squash option!
