Hi there,

Does anyone know the magic commands to mount an NFS export from a NetBSD server onto an OSX client ?

I'm exporting a filesystem from my Cobalt Qube2 running NetBSD 5 (RC2) to my local LAN:

/exports -mapall=root 192.168.0/24

So pretty loose an free with the security :-) but it will not mount on my OSX 10.5.5 Mac Mini, I use the following command :

sudo mount qube2:/exports /User/Mark/link

And get a Permission Denied back :-(

If I mount from my SGI Fuel it works just fine ... does OSX export any extra flags ? Or voodoo dance ?

Thanks

Mark

Check your Mac's firewall settings.

Did you try the using the finder? It does mount under /Volumes/something_here which can be annoying, but worth a try. In the finder, Cmd-K (Go|Connect to Server...)

hola,

i don't know much about any of this kind of stuff, but the following worked for me.

to get my fuel mounted on my g5........

on the sgi side.................................................

/etc/hosts
#ip address of mac name_of_mac
192.168.0.13 name_of_mac

/etc/exports
#directory you want to export
/usr/people/tinman/xfer

on the mac side................................................

then hit apple k and put in the following............

nfs://192.168.0.14 /usr/people/tinman/xfer

192.168.0.14 is the sgi ip. the path that follows is the directory that you want to mount.

subnet mask needs to be the same on both.

the following link might be of use..........

good luck.

since you have 10.5.x you could also use 'Directory Utility' from /Applications/Utilities.
worked flawless for me.

Well I got the info I needed, apparently on the NetBSD side you have to specify the -noresport and noresvmnt flags .. once you do that all is well. Something about OSX using unsecure NFS ?

So my Exports file looks like this :

/exports -noresvport -noresvmnt -mapall=501 -network 192.168.0/24

Regards!

Mark
