Cannot run applications from an NFS Mounted Drive

Hi,

I have two machines and have mounted a folder from one to the other using NFS. On the Master Machine I can see the applications I would like to run (Perl Scripts and Binary Files - which are in the mounted drive from the client machine). I can "ls" into the drive no problem and see the applications (tabbing even auto completes my file selection) but I cannot run the applications.

If I return to the original machine (Master) I can run these applications no problem.

There seems to be a difference between running a script locally and across the NFS mount but I cannot figure out what it is. My $PATH Variable is exactly the same on both machines.

Thanks,
- troy

What are the execute permissions on the files?
Has the filesystem been mounted with the -o noexec option?  This is most likely
Do the executables require write permission to some directory (maybe a tmp directory) on the remote machine you don't have write permission for?
