Thread: Cannot mount using NFS between 500g & 500gP

    Red face Cannot mount using NFS between 500g & 500gP

    I have a 500g(oleg1.9.2.7-7c) and a 500gP(oleg In this setup, my 500gP is the main internet & LAN router/gateway/media server. The 500g is solely used for usb-audio. 500g is in router mode & WDS mode and gets an ip from 500gP. The 500gP is in home gateway & hybrid mode. Hybrid is needed to have the 500g act as a 'client'.

    The 500gP has a 300GB usb harddisk attached. I want the 500g to connect to this harddisk to have an /opt mount and use ipkg etc. Therefore I'd thought I should use NFS for this.

    I enabled NFS on both the 500g & 500gP through the webinterface. I edited the /etc/exports on the 500gp like this:

    # automagically generated from web settings
    IP of 500gP = ('cadillac')
    IP of 500g = ('spirit')

    On the 500g, I try:
    mount -t -nfs /opt
    The return is:
    [prive@spirit root]$ mount -t nfs /opt
    mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
    mount: nfsmount failed: Bad file descriptor
    mount: Mounting on /opt failed: No such device
    So it seems that permissions are still not set right. I searched this forum for 2 hours and tried everyting, but I am really stuck now. I have the feeling that nfs should easily work since it is true linux sharing! But the only thing I have working at the moment is samba which is working like a champ. Can someone put me in the right direction?

    showmount and showmount -e do not give the nfs shares in /etc/exports:
    [prive@spirit root]$ showmount
    Hosts on
    [prive@spirit root]$ showmount -e
    Export list for
    [prive@spirit root]$

    I've a similar issue, my NFS share is on a Nas (ss4000-e from intel)
    I've no issue mounting NFS share from my other linux boxes (Debian 2.6.x)

    But the Wl500g cannot mount the NFS share see error message

    [root@intranet root]$ mount -t nfs /opt/NasServer/
    mount: Mounting on /opt/NasServer failed: No such device
    But on my NAS log it should be ok

    Feb 15 20:04:23 (none) user.notice rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from for /nas/NASDisk-00002/wl500_85 (/nas/NASDisk-00002/wl500_85)
    Could it be the Nas serveur using NFS V4 ?

    I had simillar problem on my wl-500gp. Restarting of the mountd deamon solved it.

    killall mountd
    I've put these lines to post-boot script and nfs works very well now.
