Authentication failure while accessing NFS share
I am trying to browse an NFS share on our linux server (Redhat Enterprise Version 3). I am using SuperNFS client to connect. I get this error even if the share is visible within the Windows explorer on my PC. Linux /etc/exports file looks like this:
"An error has occurred during the mount operation. It appears that the user name and password you have supplied are not being accepted by the remote host.."
Did anyone come across this problem? How can I get the Linux NFS server to accept remote access from an NFS client?
Note: I do have an account on the machine and I gave the server the correct user name and password. In fact I can login to the terminal using this user name and password. It seems to be just an NFS authenticaiton problem. Does the user environment need to be setup in any particular manner to enable NFS access?
When I logged in as root, Access was denied. I can understand Linux does not let root to remotely login to the server.
