You've probably got /usr/ports and /usr/src on the same disk partition. You can't export two chunks of the same partition to the same set of client hosts with different flags. Not only that, but you can't do anything that even smacks of changing the flags between two exported subdirectories on a single partition. Or in other words, it's the partition that gets exported, rather than the particular directory trees you specify. I think, although I could be wrong, that if you export, say, /usr/src which happens to reside on the /usr partition, then an NFS client can be persuaded to access files from anywhere on the /usr partition. What you should do is put the two subdirectories on the same line in the exports file: /usr/ports /usr/src -network 192.168.0.0 -mask 255.255.255.0 Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
