Well, I spent the weekend trying to get NFS going on my network with
no success. I think I have traced it down to SELinux "preventing the
nfsd  from allowing remote clients to read local files". I have tried
using  the setsebool -P nfs_export_all_ro=1 cmd but the terminal
responds with "Could not change policy booleans". So, I opened the
SELinux Management tool and set all options under NFS . Once more, no
change. Should I post a bug report if I don't find a duplicate entry?
