    Got my first Mac :)
    I just bought a MacBook Pro base model 13 inch. I love it

    I've got my favorite music player (Banshee) installed and everything works amazingly. I'm having some slight issues with configuring my NFS mounts but hopefully I can figure it out. Also, can I use an NFS mount for Time Machine?

    A question about using networked drives for Time Machine back-ups was recently asked here.

    You'll find a lot of your questions have probably been asked - and answered - before; always try a search before posting a new thread, it saves you - and the rest of us - a lot of time!

    Good luck resolving your issue, enjoy your Mac and your time here on Mac-Forums
    For my purposes as an engineering graduate; Windows is respectable (& generally necessary), Linux is admirable (& often useful), OS X is enjoyable (& requires no further justification, although plenty could be given)!

    I'm still having issues with my NFS server. I even had a senior representative from enterprise tech support try to help me with no luck. Basically I've tried connecting via Finder. From the "Go" menu. However, I receive an error after typing "nfs://192.168.1.3/home/shared". Weird thing is, DiskUtility says it has found the server and can connect to it. However, when I go to one of the mount points I setup in Disk Utility, no luck. I'm curious if there's special settings I would need to use/enable on the Linux box.

    I know that my MacBook Pro can connect to the server because I also run a Minecraft server on my NFS server. I can connect to that without any problems :/

    I took a video of what the issue I'm having is.

    This page discusses mounting NFS and a similar issue to yours. They suggest creating an Alias... worth a punt:
    Mac OS X Lion Samba and AFP workarounds | frankly at a glance.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    If mrplow's suggestion doesn't work, try using a symbolic link instead of an alias. The BSD subsystem of OS X doesn't recognize aliases, but symlinks it does. Finder thinks they are the same thing.

    Also try putting your NFS folder in the root directory. Maybe there's some permissions issues going on with your home folder. You should also try repairing permissions.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Still no luck :/
    I know I'm trying to cd to /NFS and not /Users/josh/NFS by the way. I tried opening the symbolic link under my user account folder with no luck either.

    Nevermind, I've solved it!!!

    Turns out I needed to add "insecure" to my "/etc/exports" file.

    Well now THAT is odd. No password was needed when I first found it, but now I do need one.
