nfs sharing

Postby locutus on Sun Nov 02, 2008 5:00 pm

I'm trying to access my laptop from my desktop (and the other way around, same result) using NFS, and I keep getting "access denied".

This is my command: sudo mount 192.168.1.106:/home/doug /home/doug/NFS-laptop
and this is the result: mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.1.106:/home/doug

I've also tried: sudo mount -t nfs 192.168.1.106:/home/doug /home/doug/NFS-laptop
with the same result.

I do have my /etc/exports set up. Using the first command used to work, but I've reinstalled Mint5 on my laptop and am using 64-bit on the desktop now.

I've been following (in part) the directions found here:

What am I doing wrong?

Never mind. I had a wildcard (" * ") in the exports file that NFS didn't like. All is fine now :)
