I've set up an NFS share for my shared data partition from my desktop to my laptop; I had it working under the F12 beta (original install) and on CentOS. Since I have an essentially clean install of F12 beta (fully updated) I was setting it up again, using the old /etc/sysconfig/nfs file.
I also allowed the ports I'd assigned in the firewall, and I can ping between the machines just fine. I'm not sure if having NFS in the kernel rather than as a separate package is causing the issues, or not? At first I was getting a message on my laptop that the mount request had timed out. So I figured I'd reboot the F12 pc, after having enabled NFS in services.
Then when I tried to mount the drive on my laptop, I got permission denied, and discovered by running rpcinfo -p that NFS wasn't even showing up. Now I've got it started, ports are all assigned, I restarted iptables and ip6tables and nfs, after re-entering the ports in the firewall (that hadn't been saved) and I'm still getting a 'permission denied' message.
Just for particulars, I exported /mnt/data2share to my laptop IP of 192.168.0.65 and I'm using the command on the laptop: mount 192.168.0.74:/mnt/data2share /mnt/data2share [and also tried adding -o rw,users]
In comparing the rpcinfo -p output from both machines, I see that the F12 isn't showing anything for 'status' -- this is what's on the output for 'status' on my laptop:
program vers proto port service
100024 1 udp 10023 status
100024 1 tcp 10023 status
Ok, so is that for version 1 of NFS? Does F12 have a new NFS syntax I need to use or set up? Anyone know?
Edit: I solved this, sort of. I didn't get the mount to work, but I saw info on another thread
about sharing files, so I tried different things (ssh, remote desktop) and finally connected my F12 pc via sftp to my laptop and grabbed the files I wanted. The laptop wouldn't connect to the pc, but where there's a will, there's a way!
