You are missing the mount point/destination.

What I did, and got :-)

mount 192.168.1.1:/mnt/cdrom
mount: can't find 192.168.1.1:/mnt/cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab


In your fstab try:

192.168.1.1:/mnt/cdrom /media/nfs nfs defaults 0 0

Make sure that /media/nfs exists first.


Thanks Ken and Leendert.

I did the above, and now I got this:

ls -l /mnt/
total 20
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 13 2005 cdrom
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 3 2005 floppy
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 20 15:59 nfs
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 15 2005 sys
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 20 10:58 usb
[root@mail /]# mount 192.168.1.1:/mnt/cdrom
mount to NFS server '192.168.1.1' failed.



/etc/fstab:

192.168.1.1:/mnt/cdrom /mnt/nfs nfs defaults 0 0

How do I see if the NFS server is running ?.

I have the nfs-utils installed.

Here's what I could find out of on the server with reference to nfs:

service nfs status
Shutting down NFS mountd: rpc.mountd is stopped
nfsd is stopped
rpc.rquotad is stopped
[root@mail /]# service nfs start
Starting NFS services: [ OK ]
Starting NFS quotas: [ OK ]
Starting NFS daemon: [ OK ]
Starting NFS mountd: [ OK ]

NB: Its NOT a SuSE server.
