I have a problem with one of my NFS shares. On one computer running debian I have mounted a NTFS drive using ntfs-3g, using this line in my fstab file:

/dev/sda2       /delt    ntfs-3g        rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=0111        0       0

This works and gives all files and folders 666 permissions. I want to share this disk over NFS, and are doing this by using this line in the exports file:


All are going well until here, when im trying to mount the NFS share client-side also on debian using the following line in the fstab file: /mnt/delt nfs

I dont get access to the share, when trying to cd in to /mnt/delt it returns the error "No access" (translated). Opening the location in Nautilus gives the following:

Anybody knows what im doing wrong?

Edit: I do have other NFS shares that works.

what are your samba settings? – Colyn1337 Oct 14 '13 at 19:16
Samba is not installed at the moment. – iThenrik Oct 14 '13 at 19:20
Did you authorize the client on the server in the /etc/hosts.allow (assuming you use a hosts.deny file as welL, otherwise, not specifying either grants access)? – Colyn1337 Oct 14 '13 at 19:40
Oops, i forgot to add that i have a lot of other NFS shares that do work. – iThenrik Oct 14 '13 at 19:41
Run rpcinfo -p are the nfs services started? – Colyn1337 Oct 14 '13 at 19:45
