I am attempting to set up an NFS server on a new Fedora 27 computer I have assembled using instructions I found, "Fedora Administration_Guide_Draft/NFS" and I am having a problem accessing it.

$ cat /etc/exports




Using the information I received here I have the server connecting now, except that I need to set the firewall to allow nfs. The problem was that I followed the routine described in "Fedora Administration_Guide_Draft/NFS" and assumed it was creating the files displayed. I was mislead there.

"/var/ftp/pub" etc did not exist in my server, they were only in the examples given in the instructions.

So I created /export/home and a new /etc/exports using a line from my working NFS system:

# cat /etc/exports

Once that was done I was able to connect to the server and see an empty test file I put into /exports/home/

# ll /mnt/test/
total 0
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Apr 14 11:52 zzztest

I received an overwhelming response to my query, all very helpful, which I will save in my notes for the next time I do this. My objective now is to use the new computer while I rework the old server. I think I should be able to finish the effort with what I have now.

Thanks to everyone responding,
