NFS mount issues

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:

Code:
 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!

I did some research and it appears there's a bugzilla report filed on the issue so I added a comment.

Talking Solved (mostly)

I figured it out, I think. I opened up the NFS config to try allowing connections higher than 1024, in the off chance that made a difference. While I was looking at the 'host' info, I saw there was an 'http:/' in front of the IP number, I didn't put that there. I looked at /etc/exports, and sure enough it had the host IP prepended by http:/. I edited the /etc/hosts file and removed the http:/ ; did a 'service nfs restart' then I could mount the share just fine.

I deleted the http:/ in the >system > administration >NFS package I'd installed, and when I exited and pulled it up again; I found it now has a 2nd entry with the http:/ added back in again. Where that's coming from I don't know... I'm going to add this new info. to the bugzilla also.

Hopefully it gets fixed soon, if not this appears to be a work-around (i.e. edit the /etc/exports to remove the http:/ )

sounds like a bug in system-config-nfs, assuming that's what you used. I feel like I've heard about it before, but couldn't find a bug report...can you file one?

Sure, eating is highly over-rated anyway. Since it was my first bug-report I used the walk-thru guide or whatever they call it, and it took forever to scroll thru the packages to get to system-config-nfs. So after all that, here's the link to the report: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=533771

Thanks!
