Try it without the "-rw" at all, as according to man 5 exports
read/write is the default, and no read/write flag is given.

I believe you will have to specify permissions (via the -maproot
or -mapall options) or make the exported filesystems writable
by "nobody" (uid 65534) to actually use the write functionality.

Good luck.
