Unable to nfs mount from new mint 19 to mint 17

Post by bjornmu » Sat Sep 29, 2018 3:25 pm

I seem to get into trouble with NFS every time I get a new computer....

I've been running two boxes with Mint 14 and 17 and I have mounted home directories both ways. Never bothered to automate since they tend to be on continuously, so I just mount manually after reboot. Now the Mint 14 is being retired and replaced with a new box with Mint 19. But I get access denied when I try to mount my home directory on the new box to the Mint 17 one. Oddly, it does work on the Mint 14.

I installed nfs-client and nfs-kernel-server, added an entry to /etc/exports:

/home/bjornmu *(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)

, and did /usr/sbin/exportfs -ra

What am I missing? There's nothing in the syslog. On the client side (Mint 17) I get the same error if I try mounting a directory which does not exist.
