Description nathan.goodman 1999-08-09 17:30:29 EDT
I'm unable to get PCNFS working (specifically Hummingbird
NFS Maestro version 6).  Running portmap -d, I get this

server: about do a switch
portmap[904]: connect from to getport(nfs):
request from unauthorized host

What am I doing wrong?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-12 11:55:59 EDT
Portmap uses /etc/hosts.{access,deny}. Check your tcp_wrapper
Comment 2 nathan.goodman 1999-08-12 15:07:59 EDT
/etc/hosts.{access,deny} look okay.  (They had to be set right for
rexec to work (per my previous problem)).

ps shows rpc.nfsd running, but nothing that looks like pcnfsd.  Is
this needed?  Where do I get it?

Thanks as always,

This problem appears solved. Please reopen if I'm wrong.
