I didn’t try and mount as I had the message and all my mounts are hashed out:-
# rootfs is not mounted in fstab as we do it via initramfs. Uncomment for remount (slower boot)
#/dev/vero-nand/root / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 0
# UUID=64A5-F009 /mnt/alastair exfat rw,users,uid=1000,dmask=000,fmask=000,nofail 0 0
# 192.168.169.130:/Multimedia /mnt/Multimedia nfs noauto,x-systemd.automount 0 0
I had been trying to mount using the remote control until now but the nfs server for the relevant system is not shown. I can ping each way between machines and I am seeking help now my attempts have failed and thought cli route might be better so I can see what I am (not) doing!
I really do not know enough about firewall and have not configured any specific ports but have protocols dhcpv6-client, mountd, nfs, rpc-bind and ssh enabled.
I have three other nfs client connections showing although only one is being used at present.
Having read your excellent suggestions, for which many thanks indeed, I was able to auto mount using autofs and everything is working as planned. I note that autofs had already been installed in this Vero system.
I have no idea why I could not succeed in getting nfs connection to work simply using the remote and Kodi interface and wonder if it was because I already had autofs installed, but what I have now is working very well and of course I can select and play using remote as usual.
Many thanks again.
