Angry NFS mounting : Permission denied

Hi all

I can not mount exported directory from a server!


On Server:
its IP :
its Domain :
nfsd is running
/home is added to /etc/exports with read/write permission

On Client :
$showmount -e
/home lc*

I add this line to fstab /home nfs defaults 0 0

$mount -a
mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

Please help me :-(
thanks in advance

The important part is no_root_squash. This disables 'root squashing', a security feature that changes read/write requests from the root to requests from a guest account. You might be alright if you use a normal non-root account without no_root_squash. But then, you shouldn't be root unless absolutely neccessary.

Hope you don't have iptables filtering out NFS traffic at your client.
