10.6: Add NFS Mounts using Disk Utility
Authored by: CoolMischa on Dec 28, '11 09:07:39AM

Moin, moin together,

if you set the "insecure" attribute on the server for the share, then your Mac should connect without any problems. A far as I know allows this attribute to connect with to the nfs-server over non-privileged ports (>1024). These ports are used if you are not root to open the connection :-) This helped me in the first step.

Now I got two other problems:
1. Write access is not given on directories below the exported one. The Mac user is not known by the nfs sever, must she?
2. If I set up iptables firewall the nfs mount failed and I donnot know why, because with a Linux client it works. Any ideas are welcome

Regards

Mischa
