Well I dont' know if I can make it clearer but I will try.
I have two Ubuntu boxes both have the NFS system installed.
If I write
mount  box A:/home  /mnt/home  on both box A and box B I can
see box A's home directory on either box
If I write
mount box B:/home  /mnt/home all I get is a permission denied warning.
What I am trying to find out is if the reason I can't mount box B is because of a
network problem or because you should not have two NFS severs running on the one
