    mounting problem


    Hello,
    I want to mount a directory from another computer.

    I make so:

    #mount -t nfs 192.168.3.2:/backup/ /home/backup/

    The both computers can communicate.

    Backup directory has the 777 permission and is owned by root (both on local and on remote computer)

    I get the following error:

    mount: 192.168.3.2:/backup/ failed, reason given by server: Permission denied


    Do you know why? What can I do?


    Thanks,
    ddaas

    Is nfsd running on the remote computer ? And rpc.portmap ?
    Could you post the /etc/exports file ?
    I\'m so tired .....

    thanks a lot.
    The problem was with /etc/exports. I had forgotten about it.
