Re: mounting problem

Hi Jayan

Instead of Ip Adress please use hostname
In the /etc/exports please make entry as below
/dir -root=,access=

Re: mounting problem

Hi ,

I belive it should work with even IP address.

I belive you have space between the options in exports.

1) Please double check the entry (delete ur line and paste the below line in /etc/exports)

/home -root=192.168.1.199,rw=192.168.1.199

2) showmount -e ( post the o/p)
