Yip and portmap, named, dhcp, ssh, http, squid, the PC several times.
But I would like you to know that I have an idea as to what has to be done
now, much learning has taken place last night.
I have all services running smoothly.
One problem: the nfs server is for a linux installation server, hence the fc1
dir. Taking an aleady installed PC and booting up DHCP the hostname and all
and all gets set. Then the PC can access the NFS share. Cool.
But If I try a network installation it fails, Why? easy Permissions. But I
have specified the IP range as who has access, If you are on my range you get
access, right, When you do an NFS install booting from CD-Rom it seems that
although the PC is an IP the server is still refusingto give it access.
But heres the problem, If I set the acces to the NFS Share to <world> then the
bugger refuses to start.
(mmm, wheres my sledge hammer, I make it start! :=} )
I would assume that this has something to do with my dhcp/dns config.
Have you got ideas?
By the way thanks for the response, people seem to be chicken lately to take
on a challenge especially when its not their own. :-}
