As my home machine draws ever closer to actually being netfed, I'm thinking
that it's time to find out what I've been doing wrong with exports. I have
been unable to, by any means, specify that any *specific* machine can export
filesystems; any restriction whatsoever denies access to any machine I have
nearby. I'm trying to use either explicit names or networks; either way,
the nearby machines are not being granted access.
Is there any convenient way to tell mountd to spew messages about *why*
it denies mounting to a given host? I have tried using local names ('kathy'),
full names ('kathy.solon.com'), IP addresses ('126.96.36.199'), or
networks ('-network 192.129.84 -mask 255.255.255.0'). None of these
work. (In case it's not obvious, the box I want to be mounting things is
named kathy.solon.com, and is at 188.8.131.52, when she's on the net at
If I leave the lines blank, or optionally provide a maproot, all the local
hosts can mount filesystems fine.
