I applied this article to my server today and I found an exportfs-error: in /etc/exports a range of clients has to be described like 'ip/netmask'. CORRECT WAY: '', whereas the example on this page throws an error.--Zenlord 08:34, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

SSH tunnelling

Since NFSv4 is a insecure protocol (doesn't encrypt traffic), what about adding some info about tunneling it with SSH? This link is very useful: The only problem, rpcbind has to be also tunneled.

client ip address/ranges

Also mentioning that we need to put client ip address/ranges in the /etc/exports might be a good idea for people using NFS for the first time. Inxsible

Mounting the partitions on the client

I tried following the wiki but it seems that, for the client, it is no longer necessary to start rpcbind or nfs-common services.--Angheloko 11:44, 8 October 2011 (EDT)
