[SOLVED] mount.nfs4: access denied by server

Hi folks. I seem to be having a bit of a problem getting nfs4 to work. I am trying to mount a share from alpha (my fileserver) onto charlie (my workstation). Both of these are new Arch systems and I haven't had any nfs working yet, although I have with other distros on the same hardware.

Fileserver (alpha) config:

# /etc/exports
/files 192.164.1.0/24(rw,sync,fsid=0,no_subtree_check)
#
# /etc/hosts.allow
sshd:    192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
nfsd:    192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
rpcbind: 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
mountd:  192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
idmapd:  192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
statd:   192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0

This happens even after both systems are rebooted. Can anyone spot what I am missing?

Thanks for looking.

Re: [SOLVED] mount.nfs4: access denied by server

I couldn't get nfs4 working with only 1 `fsid 0' share. I think you have to add more shares to it inside that. Also on the client when you mount a nfs4 share the server path is relative to the fsid 0 share.

Re: [SOLVED] mount.nfs4: access denied by server

Now I really feel stupid. A little proofreading would have saved me a big headache. In /etc/exports I was exporting to 192.164.1.0/24 while my network is the more standard 192.168.1.0/24.

It works fine now, although I did take phaul's suggestion and added my main share "inside" the nfs4 root.
