I want to free up my own PC at work (currently used for work and Linux nfs and
web server) and I am trying to set up an nfs server on a second PC.
My own PC uses RH6.1 and is successfully running nfs. The second PC is a 486
running RH6.0 that I want to use as the nfs server (partly to free up
my own PC, partly to demonstrate the power of Linux to the Operating Systems
However, I am unable to configure nfs on the second machine.
When I run /etc/rc.d/init.d/nfs start, I get the following:
Starting NFS services [OK]
Starting NFS statd:
Starting NFS quotas:
Starting NFS mountd:
Starting NFS daemon:
nfssvc: Address already in use
Is this an IP address conflict? I have 2 separate IP addresses for the 2 PCs.
Also, when I run rpcinfo -p on the RH6.1 PC, I get the following:
portmapper, rquotad, mountd, nfs
but when I run it on the RH6.0 486 I don't get portmapper.
In /etc/exports I have
and this appears when I run exportfs. But, when I try to mount this
from the first PC, I get
mount:193.1....:/home/cormac failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
