NFS, ftp, telnet Connection refused

NFS, ftp, telnet Connection refused

Post by Pete Cummin » Tue, 11 Sep 2001 06:48:57

I have two Linux boxes connected via TCP/IP (peer to peer). I am able to
ping both machines via host name, alias and IP address. ifconfig shows eth0
and loop set up and running. I cannot use NFS without getting connection

I am able to use telnet from one machine to the other but not back the other
way (again connection refused).


http://hostname:901 (connection refused) returns the surver may not be
accepting connections or maybe busy

xinetd.d exists but is empty
when I use rpcinfo -p I get: (on the machine that won't telnet)
1000000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
1000000 2 udp 111 portmapper
1000021 3 udp 1024 nlockmgr
1000021 3 udp  1024 nlockmgr
1000024 1 udp 1025 status
1000024 1 tcp 1024 status

Is it because the xinetd.d is not configured with the required services?? Do
I need to configure identd.conf??

any help would be gr8ly appreciated

Thanks in advance



1. NFS and telnet "Connection refused" between RH 7 and 8 systems

I'm getting the below error when I try to mount the root file system
on a remote machine. I have the same UID/GID on both machines.

I'm getting the same "Conection refused" when I try to telnet.

I can ping the IP address

What security setup am I missing?

the NFS error
mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused

the telnet error

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
