If /usr/local/www is not a mount point, this will not work.  You need to
put the mount point (eg: /usr) in /etc/exports, and add the option
-alldirs to allow it to mount a subdirectory of the mount point.

Subject: nfs server


I'm configuring nfsd on my freebsd box, and trying to mount from my
linux box. I keep getting permission denied on the linux side, and I'm
not sure why.

My local network is

I've added this to /etc/exports.

/usr/local/www -network -mask

My client from is trying to mount /usr/local/www, and it's
getting permission denied from the nfs server, so I'm assuming that my
/etc/exports is somehow misconfigured.

Can anyone help me with this? I'm not used to BSD-style exports.
