Question Problems with NFS on Redhat 9 ???

Hi all. I have setup a small lab and i am trying to test the security of my redhat 9 system. I have assigned a static IP to the linux machine, say, 123.456.7.8. (The linuxs box is the victim machine)

On my client (or ther attackers box) i have also set a static IP and i can ping my linux box.

When i try to issue the command
showmount -e 123.456.7.8 from the ATTACKERS machine all i get is Export list for 123.456.7.8 :

What could be the problem that i don't get to see
Export list for 123.456.7.8 :

I have the same same issue with my TARGET solaris 8 box.

Update: I managed to "showmount -e 123.456.7.8" the remote solaris 8 box after including the following entry in my /etc/dfs/dfstab directory:

share -F nfs -o rw=clients -d "clientgroup" /export/home

However, when i try

(mount 123.456.7.8:/export/home /mnt) i get a message that permission is denied. How can i get about this??? Is there a way to give permission to remote users from the solaris box???
