    RPC: Mount Timed out

    Hello All,

    I am having problems mounting a remote disk on a RedHat Box. I keep getting an error saying RPC: Mount Timed out.

    I have the following machines

    1 RedHat 9 box that has the disk (/shrek) that I want to mount
    2 RedHat 7.3 box's that I want to mount /shrek onto.

    I can mount /shrek on to one of the RH7.3 box's with no problems but I get the timeout error when trying to mount it on the second RH7.3 box.

    I have both of the RH7.3 names in the /etc/exports file on the RH9 box and have also double checked that I have nfs running.

    I can ping the RH9 box from both of the 7.3 box's and I can also SSH into the RH9 box.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you telnet in on the port nfs uses?

    im not sure what port this is, but netstat on the server should give you an indication.

    I would check the firewall on the local redhat 7 box that you cannot connect from.

    i think nfs uses port 2049 to listen to.
    what does
    rpcinfo -p
    showmount -e them on the server that has /shrek mounted as a nfs partition.
    Fixing Unix is better than working with Windows.
