Re: NFS - file systems always read-only despite "rw,no_root_squash" and "mount -o rw"

> I've got a fresh installation of Debian on an old Pentium, on a LAN with
the nfs-server package running. I have an export in /etc/exports set to be
read-write without root squashing and mounted it read-write on another
computer on the LAN. But when I try to write anything to the mounted
filesystem on the client I get the error message "Read-only file system."
It doesn't matter whether I'm a regular user or whether I'm root, I can't
write anything to the mount. Even when I mount the export locally I can't
write to it. I ensured that the export is indeed mounted rw by typing
'mount' to list the mounts.

This is a long shot.... are the permissions of the directories your trying
to write to correct?
