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):

How reproducible:

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.

I think you have your firewall security level set too high.  It is blocking the
NFS connection.

With setting the eth0 to trusted, 
or the firewall to disabled it works.


I don't understand why samba is not also stopped by the firewall ?
