[SOLVED] Problem Connecting to NFS Server...

I have my F14 up and running now except I am having a problem with the NFS configuration. The configuration is coming from a variety of sources on the net and likely I have messed something up along the way. I have moved from a problem where I couldn't make a connection at all to one where the permissions appear to be the issue now. Unfortunately I am not understanding the permissions settings that need to be made.

I am connecting to the F14 box via a Mac OS 10.6.x machine and when connecting through the Connect to Server approach I get an error of: The folder "Transfers" can't be opened because you don't have permission to see its contents.

On the F14 box the messages log gives me these line entries:
Jan 30 12:11:41 SISMasterServer rpc.mountd[3998]: authenticated unmount request from for /Storage/Transfers (/Storage/Transfers)
Jan 30 12:11:48 SISMasterServer rpc.mountd[3998]: authenticated mount request from for /Storage/Transfers (/Storage/Transfers)
My nfs file has the following:
# Define which protocol versions mountd
# will advertise. The values are "no" or "yes"
# with yes being the default
# Path to remote quota server. See rquotad(8)
# Port rquotad should listen on.
# Optinal options passed to rquotad
# Optional arguments passed to in-kernel lockd
# TCP port rpc.lockd should listen on.
# UDP port rpc.lockd should listen on.
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.nfsd. See rpc.nfsd(8)
# Turn off v2 and v3 protocol support
# Turn off v4 protocol support
# Number of nfs server processes to be started.
# The default is 8.
# Stop the nfsd module from being pre-loaded
# Set V4 grace period in seconds
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.mountd. See rpc.mountd(8)
# Port rpc.mountd should listen on.
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.statd. See rpc.statd(8)
# Port rpc.statd should listen on.
# Outgoing port statd should used. The default is port
# is random
# Specify callout program
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.idmapd. See rpc.idmapd(8)
# Set to turn on Secure NFS mounts.
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.gssd. See rpc.gssd(8)
# Optional arguments passed to rpc.svcgssd. See rpc.svcgssd(8)
# To enable RDMA support on the server by setting this to
# the port the server should listen on
My hosts.allow has:
My hosts.deny is empty.

My exports file is setup with the following:
Does anyone have any pointers that they can give me?

I figured it out. There was a permissions issue with the folder. Basically it was assigned to a different user and group. Doing a CHOWN to set the folder to the same user as anonuid and then making sure the CHMOD was 755 opened up the world.
