Mounting ubuntu partition to xp pro

I am mounting server NFS shared partitions to a windows XP pro system.  I assume the XP pro system is working correctly since it is correctly mounting 2 windows shares, 2 Solaris shared mountpoints and 1 linux mount point.

I am attempting to share one last mount point from a new ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) system.  I have downlaoded and installed nfs-kernel-server nfs-common and portmap.  The ubuntu system is already correctly mounting nfs partitions from a variety of other systems.

I have worked with different /etc/exports file entries for the one partition I need to share but have not been successful in getting the mount to happen.  I get an error message on the XP side indicating that either I need to run the NFS client services (they are obviously running) or it needs to connect to a user name map. I am either running "exportfs -a" or restarting the nfs server processes any time I edit the /etc/exports file.

I assume the issue is on the ubuntu side since the XP system can already mount from several other systems correctly.

Any help is appreciated.

This looks like it is strictly an ubuntu issue.  I am also unable to mount from the ubuntu system to a solaris system also on the same subnet.

I can ping to each machine and ssh from the XP and Solaris systems to the ubuntu system.  I beleive that network connectivity is not the problem.

I was able to get this to work with the following combination of items

 - Start the name server services on windoze
 - setup the password and group file for SFU on windows
 - Verify the proper uid and gid mapping on windows
 - add options of "insecure" "anonuid=0" and "anongid=0" to the /etc/exports file
