On my Ubuntu system, I have this line in /etc/fstab:

myserver:/home/me /mnt/me nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr

When I do

sudo mount -a

I get:

mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting myserver:/home/me

How can I diagnose this problem? The nfs server is also Ubuntu.

Additional details: I am able to mount this nfs share from other Ubuntu clients on the same network with no problem. However, the problematic client is different in that it is running inside VirtualBox on a Windows system. I can ping “myserver” fine from the problematic client.

/etc/exports on “myserver”:

/home/me *(rw,all_squash,async,no_subtree_check,anonuid=1000,anongid=1000)

/etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny on “myserver” are both all comments. And keep in mind, that I can connect fine from other clients on the same network.
