Mounted NFS share service question

Hi, I have enabled an NFS share in YaST to be mounted at ~/Documents

My line in fstab was added as thus

titolinux:/server /home/tito/Documents nfs defaults 0 0

The share is detected and its icon is on the desktop, but the only way I can access if (after a reboot) is if I first open the YaST NFS client utility. Unless I run the utility first nothing is mounted in ~/Documents and when clicking on the desktop icon I get

"Permissions denied"

After I run the utility it is mounted in ~/Documents and the icon is working.

I figure it must be because the utility stops and starts all relevant services before it exits.

Does anyone know which services should be enabled? I went into the runlevel editor and toggled everything beginning with NFS on.

You need:

rpcinfo -p to see if they are running (on server)

Make sure these are not blocked by iptables

rpcinfo -p <server ip address> from the client to make sure client can see them

Hope this helps
