I'm trying to set up an NFS file server on one of the boxes on my

the following /etc/exports file:
/home/magnusg/music 192.168.1.11(rw,sync) 192.168.1.12(rw,sync)
to allow the other three boxes r/w access to the
directory /home/magnusg/music on the server (192.168.1.14).
Also on the server, I used system-config-services to start nfs and
nfslock on run levels 3 and 5. Then I checked NFS4 on the firewall
configuration widget system-config-firewall to open tcp and udp ports
2049. Then I rebooted the server.
On one of the clients I then did (as root):
mount 192.168.1.14:/home/magnusg/music /mnt/PuteF
and got the error message:
mount: mount to NFS server '192.168.1.14' failed: System Error: No route
I'm guessing I need to open more ports, but which ones and where? The
four boxes are connected to a Linksys router.
Thanks for the help! --Jerry
Try turning your firewall off completely for a while - "service iptables stop"
or "service ip6tables stop" will do it from the shell.
I don't bother with firewalls on my internal network machines, but then my
kids are only young!
If turning it off makes nfs work then turn it back on using service iptables
start and send the output from service iptables status to the list.
