nfs setup on slack 9.1 - no route to host sorted!!
My small problem. having set up a nice server running slack 9.1 nfs, I originally had 2 pcs connecting in to it and it works fine, with read write access etc. So I want to add another box, and it stubbornly refuses to allow the new machine to connect. the other two are fine. the new machine is all there, it can access the internet through my gateway/router, I can log in to it from another pc, it is possible that I am missing a service on it, but i think that it is at the server that the problem is. The error on message on boot up of the new machine is:
root@slacky:~# /sbin/mount -a -t nfs
mount: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host
if I do show mount:
root@slacky:~# showmount -e 192.168.0.10
Export list for 192.168.0.10:
where 192.168.0.50 is the machine I am trying to get working
me rpc info says
root@slacky:~# rpcinfo -p
program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
I was looked at the rpcinfo for the server, and after the portmapper, it has rquotad, could I be missing this?
I have added all three machines to the host.allow but this did not make any difference.
my fstab looks like this
root@slacky:/# cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /home/fat vfat defaults 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
192.168.0.40:/home/share /home/serviette nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr 0 0
the exports on the server is:
root@serviette:~# cat /etc/exports
# See exports(5) for a description.
# This file contains a list of all directories exported to other computers.
# It is used by rpc.nfsd and rpc.mountd.
the hosts allow looks like:
root@serviette:~# cat /etc/hosts.allow
portmap: 192.168.0.20, 192.168.0.30, 192.168.0.50
# End of hosts.allow.
I am fairly new to all this, so I may have omitted to do something obvious..
