Description Chris Ricker 2002-02-14 13:29:14 EST
Using two RH 7.2 boxes with the 2.4 kernel, attempts to mount NFS over TCP fail,
but the same attempt over UDP works:

station14# mount -o tcp server1:/export/kickstart /mnt/kickstart
nfs server reported server unavailable: Address already in use
station14# mount server1:/export/kickstart /mnt/kickstart

Not only is the NFSv3 implementation broken, but the error messages are
extremely bizarre.  What about "Address already in use" indicates "server does
not support TCP"?
Comment 1 Michael K. Johnson 2002-03-27 18:26:56 EST
NFS/TCP is reported to function in later kernels, and will probably
function in an upcoming release.

You can, if you like, test our skipjack beta to confirm.
Comment 2 Chris Ricker 2002-03-27 23:00:15 EST
It doesn't work with 2.4.18-0.4 on both server and client.

And it still fails with the completely bogus error message.
Comment 3 Seth Vidal 2002-04-13 01:03:34 EDT
2.4.18-0.13 also doesn't work.
though I would be eternally grateful if y'all would patch in neil's server-side
tcp fixes.
