I've got NFS set up as a server on my Linux 3.7.1 (Slackware 14) box. I'm able to connect to it using my OS X Mountain Lion client, but Finder will not show any files. However, if I run ls through the Terminal, I can see the files OK.

I'm able to upload and download files just fine, I am just unable to view the files. I'm sharing a mount point called /mnt/data which has a btrfs filesystem mounted on it. I'm guessing it may be permissions-related, but I've got /mnt/data with read/write access for everyone.

drwxrwxrwx 1 root root  138 Jan  4 10:34 data/

Any ideas?

I'm connecting to the NFS share by using the Go menu and then clicking on Connect to Server...

My /etc/exports file has one entry in it that looks like this:

/mnt/data 192.168.1.188(rw,insecure)

ls -al results:

test.pl is the file that I have been testing with. I noticed that I can see it in the Finder always, even if I connect/disconnect. I am fairly sure that permissions are to blame, but I don't know which settings to change to get NFS to play nice with Finder.

Please post the full output of ls -al on the mount in OS X. Where is it mounted to, exactly? Are you connected via Finder (Go » Connect to Server…) or the command line (mount_nfs)? –  slhck Jan 4 '13 at 15:58
    
@slhck - I always look forward to your answers... –  Everett Jan 4 '13 at 16:08
