this is a weird problem: I have a small network featuring 3 computers:
the subdomain for each computer is: ping.de
5.3 IP: 192.168.0.1
5.3 IP: 192.168.0.2
C IBM Thinkpad with 3com PCMCIA card SuSE 6.3 IP:
A exports some directories as follows
/mnt/armnet1 *.ping.de (rw)
/mnt/armnet2 *.ping.de (rw)
B exports some directories as follows
/home/anubis *.ping.de (rw)
/home/sheos *.ping.de (rw)
C exports one directory as follows:
/home/thies *.ping.de (rw)
/etc/hosts is setup correctly on all machines,
portmap AND rpc.nfsd AND rpc.mountd are started at boot-time. Every
machine can be pinged or fingered or telneted etc. by name OR IP - no
difference! The network seems to be working fine.
1) A exports corretly to B (and vice versa), but A refuses to export to
C - it does not matter if I use the subdomain "shortcut" or enter a long
list of IP-addresses in /etc/exports (on maschine A) - it just says
"Blocked attempt of C to mount...".
2) B exports correctly to A and C. (no problem here :))
3) C exports to A and B (no error reported), but the directories seem to
be empty! (all UIDs are equally set for all users on all machines).
What am I doing wrong? showmount -e <HOST> and rpcinfo -p <HOST> give
correct answers / equal answers. I am totally clueless. Why does A
export to B but refuses to export to C? Why does C export to A and B,
but the directories are empty (however, a mount on A or B shows correct
entries for the exported directory on C)?
It would be great if someone could give me a hint!
