Hi,

I would like a user (not root) to be able to mount a remote NFS mount.  But everytime I mount the path it is owned by netdump, and then I can't read the contents.  Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

server: /etc/exports
/backups.0/user 1.2.3.4(ro,no_root_squash,async)

client: /etc/fstab
server:/backups.0/user /home/user/backups.0/ nfs ro,hard,intr,noauto,user 0 0

Could you do
ls -ald /backups.0/user
on the server and post here?

Please provide output from server side
ls -ld /backups.0/user
should be redable for all, or at least for the user You want it read as(if NIS is configured, and users are populated from server to client as well)

You're right, it's the permissions.  But how do I mount an NFS share without the permissions?

I thought the root_no_squash was going to make it as if I was reading all the files as if I was the root user on the server side?

You can't do that.
