    Hello there, I am still a linux novice of sorts, trying to get a remote directory mounted on a CentOS 5 (essentially Red Hat) server here from another CentOS 5 server.


    # mount 192.168.0.112:/mnt/tmp /tmp/tim
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on 192.168.0.112:/mnt/tmp,
    missing codepage or other error
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so


    and when I do dmesg | tail on this machine:
    # dmesg | tail
    device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
    device eth1 left promiscuous mode
    device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
    device eth1 left promiscuous mode
    device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
    device eth1 left promiscuous mode
    device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
    device eth1 left promiscuous mode
    FS-Cache: Loaded
    FS-Cache: netfs 'nfs' registered for caching




    from the 192.168.0.112 remote server:

    # cat /etc/exports
    /mnt/tmp 192.168.*.*



    I had just edited the /etc/exports file on the remote location earlier today, I assume I don't need to restart NFS or anything like that do I? Is it something obvious like you can't mount a remote /mnt directory?

    Please help, anything that would help point me in the right direction would be great.

    Thanks!

    Just an update here.. I have tried changing:

    #cat /etc/exports
    /mnt/tmp 192.168.0.0/24(rw,mountpoint,no_root_squash)

    and I did:

    #exportfs -r


    but am still getting the error on the origination server... Any ideas?
