Thanks for the help and suggestions yesterday.
I have a solution to the problem, but I'm not happy
with it. The problem is that when I mount the
nfs-exported /home on the client, I cannot see
the contents of the user directories. I have
exported /home as
but root squashing seems to be occuring anyway(?)
My solution was to do a chmod 755 on /home/cormac.
I can now see (as root) the contents of /home/cormac
and all subdirectories. But, is this an unacceptable
solution from a security point of view?
The purpose of the nfs server would be to distribute
home directories using NIS/NFS to a small number of
PCs in a lab for a Linux course (only used 4 hours
