I’m running an nfs server on my asus router running entware. Unfortunately, only version 2 of the server is available on that platform. While trying to set up the client on my osmc installation to connect to the server, it refuses to do so. I’ve adjusted a few lines in the export file like adding an insecure flag, but no go.
Does anyone know how I can install version 2 of the nfs server on osmc?
If you are speaking about NFS version 2 (protocol), then this is quite old!
If you could get the log so we could look at the error message, we could get a better idea of what is going on. I’m not able to tell whether you’re trying to connect to the share via Kodi or /etc/fstab at the moment either.
Sorry, I tried connective via Kodi, but obviously that gave me an error with no details. Then I tried it via modifying fstab, but it yielded the same results. Here’s is the contents of my /etc/exports file on the server:
The router is actually only a year or so old, but I managed to get nfs protocol version 3 running on the router! Turns out, I installed the userspace package which was outdated but the one for the kernel is 3.
But now, I have another issue when i try to mount with sudo mount -av:
