I would like to export a directory on my Mac via NFS. I created /exports with the help of the NetInfo utility, I also created the directory entries within the new /exports domain and the directory itself. I also created /etc/hosts.allow to tell portmap subnets it should allow.
Idefix:~ joe$ showmount -e Exports list on localhost: Idefix:~ joe$ nidump exports / /Users/Shared/dbox2
ShowMount -e doesn't show anything although the directory is in netinfo, see nidump.
I rebooted already. I did signal mountd -HUP but nothing. What else needs to be done?
The website link I found here in discussion doesn't work anymore. Anyone knows a good article for Mac OS? The Linux/ FreeBSD articles don't help because they don't have to deal with NetInfo.
I'm running 10.4 User
PB G3 500MHz, Mac OS X (10.4.7)

At the risk of sounding vaguely obscene, please take a look at my wiki NFS page.
