I have two linux redhat boxes, one ver 6.1 (called
gateway-192.168.1.1) and one ver 7 (called dad-192.168.1.2). I'm
trying to set up file sharing and cannot get the machines to see each
other. On the gateway, in Linuxconf,
I activated 'exporting nfs' in the server section and configured it to
export the root directory (/) to dad's IP address: 192.168.1.2. On
dad, I activated under the 'files' section in linuxconf the nfs. Upon
boot, I get a "connection refused". When trying to manually mount on
dad (mount -t nfs 192.168.1.1.:/ /mnt/gateway), it fails with the same
When installing on gatweay, I did NOT install server programs, but did
install knfsd.rpm later from the CD. Do I need to install any other
rpms to get the
nfs server function to work? Which ones?
Any help would bbe greatly appreciated.
