Angry mounting error

i m unable to share the /home of server. when i mount -a on the slave an error is generated

mount: host1:/home failed, reason given by server: permission denied

the /etc/hosts files on both server and slave r same.
on the server the contents of file /etc/exports are

/home *.,sync,no_root_squash)

It looks to me like the net/mask entry of the ip addresses in /etc/exports is incorrect. The "*." at the front of the net/mask does not make sense. Combining that with a net/mask combination is not permitted. The entry should be as follows:
By the way, using no_root_squash is somewhat dangerous. A user logged in as root on a client (slave) would have complete access to /home after they mount it.
