NFS Permission Trouble

Hi all,

I have exported the share /var/backup on a RedHat 9 box (1), with another RedHat 9 box (2) mapping to it.

/etc/exports on box 1 ( looks like:

/etc/fstab on box 2 ( looks like:

Code:     /mnt/remote-backup      nfs     rsize=8192,wsize=8192 0 0
I am logged in as root on the nfs client (box 2), the share maps successfully, but I don't have write permissions on the nfs share. Any ideas why? btw I have an entry in /etc/hosts.allow on the nfs server for the client PC.

I know this must be a simple problem which has been answered a hundred times before... sorry. It's the first time I've tried nfs shares and I couldn't find the answer on google...

Thanks in advance for any help!
