NFS shares in Fedora

Hello -
I have two Fedora boxes. I'm trying to setup a handful of NFS shares on one of them and access from the other but am running into problems.

ServerA ip:
ServerB ip:

Here is the /etc/exports on the ServerA (hosting the NFS shares):

Here is the /etc/fstab on ServerB: /mnt/userafiles nfs defaults 0 0 /mnt/userbfiles nfs defaults 0 0

I can ping and ssh back and forth by both IP and name. However, when running: mount -a -v from ServerB I get this message:
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=,clientaddr='
mount.nfs: mount(2): No route to host

I have disabled both firewalls for testing.

Any ideas?

have you made changes to your iptables to allow clients to access your nfs server?

did you restart all the programs that are part of NFS using "systemctl "
or reboot

as of 18 fedora is using SystemD now and not the old SystemV

Thanks for the help.

The person that setup 'ServerA' told me a few hours ago that it was actually a clone of another machine... After dinking with hostnames, routes, etc... I just gave it a fresh install and it's all good.

But thank you for your replies!
