I've just got a MacBook and could do with some help in setting up an NFS share.

I've used Disk Utility -> File -> NFS Mounts, and put
in the Remote NFS URL box, and
in the Mount Location box. The 'nfs' directory exists, and I chmod'd it to 777 (just in case ).

Then I click Verify, and after a while it reports that the NFS Server did not respond.

The server is my desktop Linux box, and my Linux laptop connects to it no problem. It's not set to only allow specific IP addresses, so I'm guessing it's at the Mac end where I've got it wrong.

Trying it from the command line returns an 'Operation not permitted' error.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
