Problem with NFS

Post by diskun » 2010/08/27 14:06:33


I installed NFS and portmap for export a folder to another PC. [b]/usr/local[/b]. [b]ftp[/b] is server's hostname and [b]ws01[/b] is client's hostname.

I edited file [b]/etc/exports[/b] with next text:

[b]/usr/local ws01(rw,root_squash) *(ro)[/b]

I restarted service portmap and nfs.

From client, I try check connection with server with command:

[b]showmount -e ftp[/b]

and result is:

[b]mount clntudp_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to receive[/b]

Anyone can help me?

Sorry, but my english is poor

Did you do "exportfs -a" after the changes? Have you verified that the services are running? Is the firewall on [b]ftp[/b] open to the client?

Things to try:[code]
service nfs status
service portmap status
exportfs -a
service iptables stop
service nfs restart
service portmap restart
