Nope; from the server:

[root@tardis gcc]# mount
/dev/hdc6 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/hdc3 on /discs/c3 type ext2 (ro)
/dev/hdc4 on /discs/c4 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hdc7 on /discs/c7 type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hdc8 on /discs/c8 type ext2 (rw)

(/home is actually /discs/c4/home).

/etc/exports is:

/discs/c4 sol(rw,no_root_squash,insecure) gort klaatu
/discs/c3 sol(rw,no_root_squash,insecure) gort klaatu
/mnt/dvd sol(rw,no_root_squash,insecure)

Server is tardis, client is sol.

Yep; to avoid posting to the list I've put it at:

its 14K and is the output of:

 /usr/sbin/tcpdump -vv -x -s 1024 host sol and tardis > /tmp/netlog 2>&1
