Description of problem:
I can mount another directory from one DESKtop on another DESKtop, But when i
try to doe the same thing on a laptop i get errors.
export on desktop -> mount command on laptop -> mount : RPC : time out
export on laptop --> mount command on desktop -> mount : RPC : portmapper
failure - RPC : Unable to receive.
On both machine the exportfiles are correctly filled. And before giving the
command i did a service nfs restart, to be sure.
If i reboot the desktop in windows98 and try to mount a directory on the laptop
using samba, it works fine.
On both machines the same version of redhat is running and all packages are
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount -t nfs Desktop:/home/1 /import (command given on laptop)
2.mount : RPC : time out
4. mount -t nfs Laptop:/home/2 /import (command given on Desktop)
5. mount : RPC : portmapper failure - RPC : Unable to receive.
Actual Results: nfs directory's not mounted
Expected Results: mounted directory's because all the deamons are running,
there is an network connection, otherwise i could also not mount a directory in
windows using samba.

or the firewall to disabled it works.
I don't understand why samba is not also stopped by the firewall ?
