    cannot export NFS share

    I started tinkering with knoppix, again, and have it installed on hard drive.

    Everything appears to have worked, except, now I cannot export my /home directory to my other machine. I'm getting the error;

    mount: RPC: Program not registered

    I did have debian, sarge installed, but I had a difficult time getting some hardware found/configured, etc. knoppix did it correctly.

    I have the same entries I had under sarge, in the /etc/exports file, but right now, I'm at a loss as to how to get my NFS mount/export reestablished.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi mailman

    I have the same problem. (I need to access a mysql db on my backup server from the main server.)

    Did you ever get anywhere with this one? Any advice gratefully received...

    it works now

    On the redhat machine I run the following calls;

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/portmap restart
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs restart
    /usr/sbin/exportfs -rav

    On the debian machine,. I ran the comparable.

    After a couple of simultaneous reboots, it works like a champ.

    On the debian /etc/fstab, I have the following;

    anza:/home/rodney /mnt/anza nfs rw,addr= 0 0
    anza:/mnt/firewire /mnt/firewire nfs rw,addr= 0 0
    anza:/iso-images /mnt/iso nfs rw,addr= 0 0

    If your server is a knoppix box....

    Try commenting out the line that says:


    in /etc/hosts.allow

    so it has:

    # ALL : ALL@ALL : DENY
