NFS Problem with Knoppix

Hi, I'm facing some problems with using NFS in knoppix, can someone help me out and point out what's wrong? Thanks.

I did the following:

1. Amended the exports file- etc/exports:

2. Changed the IP of the main machine to
ifconfig eth0 netmask

3. Restarted the NFS services:
/etc/init.d/portmap restart
/etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
/etc/init.d/nfs-common restart

4. Log in to the 2nd machine (uCSimm running uCLinux, default IP of and run:
mount -t nfs -o wsize=256,rsize=256 /usr

5. Got the following error:
mount:RPC:Unable to receive; errno:Connection refused
mount:nfsmount faNFS: mount program didn't pass remote address!
iled: Bad file descriptor
mount: Mounting on /usr failed: Invalid argument
pid 36: failed 256

Can someone tell me which part is incorrect? It seems like the way I type the mount command may be wrong from the invalid argument part. I can ping the other machine from each machine respectively and I have turned off the Firewall as well. Thanks in advance!
