Linux as NFS Server|

Hi,
I am trying to share a directory in my linux box with this entry in /etc/exports
-- cut here --
/tucows n7(rw)
-- cut here --

When I executed showmount -e linux it does ok, with something line:

/tucows  n7

Now, when I am into n7 (Irix 6.5) and I try to mount the directory give the following error and then it mounts ok:
--- cut here ---
mount linux:/tucows tukids.mrtg
mount: linux:/tucows server not responding: Program/version mismatch; lo
w version = 1, high version = 2
NFS version 3 mount failed, trying NFS version 2
mount: linux:/tucows server ok

--- cut here ---

However, it mounts ok :-)

From the Irix box I can only write into this disk if it has 777 permissions. Why?. I am root in both computers. With 755 I can not (from Irix)

Note: when I create a file (with touch) in Irix in the mounted disk it is created by the nobody user. Why.

Thanks.

root is mapped to anonymous for security reasons. To change this use the no_root_squash option in your exports file.
/tucows n7(rw,no_root_squash)

Thks!.
It is working.

But it is too slowly, I took almost one our to copy a file of 5 MB!.

The network is ok, in fact, both computer are in the same sub net, connected to a Lan Switch (cisco) in the same VLAN.

Other services (as FTP) are very fast.

Thanks
