LAN browsing - LISa & NFS

I'm attempting to set up NFS LAN browsing in KDE using LISa..

Unfortunately, when I attempt to connect to a remote machine from Konqueror, I get an error message saying -

"Authorisation failed, <host> authentication not supported"

I'm able to mount network shares manually, so NFS appears to be OK. I think it might be to do with my LISa configuration but I'm not sure. Here's my /etc/lisarc file -


SecondWait = -1
SearchUsingNmblookup = 0
DeliverUnnamedHosts = 0
FirstWait = 30
MaxPingsAtOnce = 256
UpdatePeriod = 300
PingAddresses =;
AllowedAddresses =;
BroadcastNetwork =;
PingNames =
I've got two machines on the network - and, and hostnames are resolved using the /etc/hosts files on each machine.

If anybody's got any ideas I'd be glad of the help.

Thanks in advance.

Better is to use autofs so you mount and browse nfs shares in konkeror with just a file:// url

Thanks for the tip - I'll give it a try..

But I'm still curious as to why I can't get LISa/NFS to work..

Did you ever get this to work? I've got exactly the same problem.

Eventually did get this working today...

Needed to add 'insecure' option to /etc/exports, to allow connection on unprivileged port - eg,


That's done the trick!
