I have problem with NFS sharing. See my exports:


From a client ( I'm trying to connect server with this command in terminal:

mount -t nfs -o rw /mnt

When mounting /export from (server) everything works fine, but whatever am I mounting from a client, it works but it's read only. Does anybody know where can be the problem? Please help.

NOTE: rights are on rwxrwxrwx

1. Is this the complete /etc/exports file? 2. What are these permissions on? 3. Can you post output of mount from the client after the nfs mount command you listed? – Karlson Jan 22 '13 at 18:53
Finally I found out what was the problem. I have had nested UIDs in passwd. – user35443 Jan 22 '13 at 19:21
What do you mean nested UIDs? – Karlson Jan 22 '13 at 19:35
The UIDs were assigned to wrong usernames. – user35443 Jan 23 '13 at 17:15
