    A tricky one here
    I get an RPC time out error when trying to mount an NFS share from one machine to the other, at first I thought there was some trouble connecting to the RPC service on the server, but rpcinfo -p returns fine


    Server
    Fedora Core 1
    NFS Service running
    NFS Quota running
    NFS Daemon running
    NFS mountd running
    /etc/exports is complete
    /usr/sbin/exportfs -a ran sucessfully

    Client
    Suse 9.1 running in Virtual Machine
    mount -o rw server_ip:/usr/storage /usr/storage returns error
    mount: RPC timed out

    never bloody mind

    a quick re run of
    /etc/sbin/exportfs -a
    AFTER i had started the nfs services (/etc/init.d/nfs start)
    seems to of done the trick

    sorry, im new to this NFS lark! lol :P
