The NFS server seems to refuse clients for which he is not able to do a reverse name lookup (address -> hostname).

See the LDP HOWTOs on how to do that. -- Mfg, Christopher Arndt Systron Unternehmensberatung GmbH, Opelstrasse 8c, 68789 St. Leon-Rot Fon: 06227-8642-0, Fax: 06227-864 222, e-Mail: email@example.com =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Christopher Arndt <firstname.lastname@example.org> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to email@example.com.
