http://serverfault.com – I have my nfs server running on 192.168.1.99 box, and I have my /etc/exports configured using /myshare 192.168.1.*(rw,sync,no_subtree_check) I was able to mount nfs from 192.168.1.50 client box. However I was unable to mount from 192.168.1.49! ("mount.nfs mount(2) permission denied" followed by "mount.nfs access denied by server while mounting") Then I found that I can make connection if I change client's ip to 192.168.1.48 Finally, I was able to make it work by using 192.168.1.0/24 instead of 192.168.1.* Could anybody explain why 192.168.1.0/24 works for 192.168.1.49, but 192.168.1.* (HowTos)
