I installed Fedora Core 2 on a computer from which I want to export a file system to a working NFS group. I found that I cannot make it mountable on any clients. With the same settings it was fine in RH 8 and 9.
When runnig "rpcinfo -p" from another machine in the system i get:
"rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host"
reading 'NFS-HOWTO' got me as far as "you are a victim of overzealous firewall'. The HOWTOs I was referred to are not informative enough for me.
As far as I can tell I have no iptables installed.
I think an unhealthy sign is that /proc/fs/nfs/exports is empty save for comments.
Anybody knows how to fix this ? What else should I check ?
How to controllably (preferably) diable the firewall so that what is said in /etc/exports is actually exported ?
