I am trying to set up an NFS export on a Ras Pi (Raspbian Jessie).
Something seems to be missing and I need help troubleshooting it.
At first the NFS port 2049 was not even being opened. After much futzing
around I discovered that if I manually start rpcbind with
$ sudo /etc/init.d/rpcbind start
then restart the nfs-kernel-server I can get it to work, but only if I
spell out the full ip address of the client. For instance if I put this
in /etc/exports it works:
but not if I change it to this to allow other machines on the LAN to
mount (I get: mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting
So I have two questions:
1) Why does rpcbind not start automatically on boot?
2) Why can I not specify a range of client addresses in /etc/exports ?
