Permission denied trying to mount nfs share

I have a server running FC5 and two computers running Ubuntu 7.04. Both can access the shares on the server fine. I recently tried to access the desktop from the laptop but I keep getting a permission denied error when I try.

On the desktop I have the shares in /etc/exports with the IP of the laptop listed. In /etc/hosts I have the hostname of the laptop and the IP. I restarted networking but I cannot mount the share on the laptop, I keep getting a permission denied error. Any thoughts on what could be denying permission? Might this be a firewall issue?

you need the ip and path to share. For example

#/etc/exports file on your desktop computer (rw,async)
You also need to restart /etc/init.d/nfs, or maybe /etc/init.d/nfsd on the desktop computer

Aftwards, on the desktop computer type
to view nfs shares

I don't think it's a firewall issue since you are getting the permission denied. YOu would get a "cannot connect" error if it was a firewall
