Hi all,
I am trying to test the NFS performance. I started all the nfs demons on the server properly .I did not get any error. But on the client machine when I mount the directories using the mount command I get the following error: mount: RPC :Remote system error  - connection refused

I have issued read and write permissions to the directory to be shared. I also have the "netfs" running on the client. I do have the administrative rights.

Thanks,
Mantram.

Make sure portmap is running.

You can do that by running: rpcinfo -p <server-name>.

NFS client first search for portmap entries to located the port on which the mountd is listenning. The connection refuse here means that either portmap isn't running. The other reason could be that mountd isn't running (check this with ps -edaf |grep mountd).

Goodluck

Both the portmap and mountd are running. The problem was with the firewall. So now its working fine .
