http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, This is not a particular Fedora issue, but I take the chance :) How can I mount a network (nfs) drive (on a RHEL4 machine) from my FC11, but as another user. E.g. I would like to mount the folder /home/userA on the network drive. But my local username is userB. Hence I don't seem to have access to mount the drive. sudo mount -t nfs eda4:/home/userA /mnt/eda4 gives the message: "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting (null)" I have put a broadcast address in /etc/exports and started an nfs daemon on the remote server.
