Thank you! Yes, I could see the connection being denied by FreeNAS in 
the console. Once I realized with showmount, got it working. Failed to 
mention my mx sub dir of backups is a dataset of its own. I was thinking 
the alldirs in the exports would allow it, perhaps because mx being a 
separate dataset in FreeNAS? Once I added mx as own share, works!
