NFS: Connection Problem


I have two boxes , FC 2 and RH 9 , both networked together with crossover cables.

I can mount the share directories from the RH 9 -> FC 2 box without any problems , but when I go to mount the share directiories from the FC 2 -> RH 9 box I get the error message :

"Unable to connect - Server is down"

I have gone through all the config files on the FC 2 and RH 9 boxes , but I can't find any problems with the config files.
I have started and stopped NFS on both machines , re-exported the shares , re-checked the directory permissions , all to no avail.
I have had NFS working from the FC 2 -> RH 9 box before without any problems.

I am sure it is just something very simple that I have missed.

Does anybody know how to fix this connection problem ?

Thanks.

Hi Sandgroper,
Do you have some kind of firewall on RH. The service nfsd is running on it?

Hi ,
I have flushed the iptables on the machine , I have been playing around with iptables to impliment a set of rules.
I have only used the iptables -F command , perhaps I should reset the counters.
I will reset the them so as to be certain that it is not iptables that's causing the problem.

I will check to see if nfsd is running ( I am using a windows box at the moment ) , but I am certain it is , I know portmapper is running and I have set up NFS and NFSD to run on boot up.



Thanks.
