Re: Is it a bug -- mount does not work on interfaces? [RESOLVED]

Hi Don,

I found what the problem was about half an hour ago -- the clue was found in logfiles

/var/log/syslog.1:Apr 24 10:29:19 vega mountd[1320]: refused mount request from for /export/home (/export/home): unmatched host

I got confused with my old configuration (Red Hat 7.3) where 'mount' command resolved computer name into DHCP assigned ip address and not to loopback/ as it happens in Debian Wheezy/Squeezy.

Once I modified /etc/exports to


everything started to work as expected-- 'mount' has changed it's behavior what required an adjustment on my part.

Thank you Don,

Could somebody explain what wrong?
Why mount refuses to mount through loopback interface?

The issue can be reproduced in your system with next set of commands

root# mkdir -p /exports/home
root# cat >> /etc/exports

This is allowing access to all clients on network

root# exportfs -ra
root# mount -t nfs /mnt

You haven't allowed access to clients on network

You probably need something like this in /etc/exports:

(all on one line, that probably got wrapped)

No bug. Just wrong configuration.
