Thanks for NFS Manager, but I just didn't want to use Shareware if I'm on a Unix system.
What solved the problem was part of your description in the Wiki, although not clearly mentioned.
NetInfos database was ok, but I didn't care about the actual /etc/exports FILE as one always states that netinfo-db is taking care of this and the files are more or less nonsense.
For NFS export this is not true! (at least here)
After creating the /etc/exports file with
and a kill -HUP on mountd - voila - showmount -e showed me the exported filesystem!
If I change the path in /etc/exports to something not existing: nothing shows up in showmount -e (after kill -HUP to mountd). Changing it back to real values (and kill -HUP mountd) it's here again.
So it seems to me, even though nidump knows about exports and even shows me my entries as made in NetInfo it is not used!
I didn't fire up nfsd or mountd. They are running already. I'm on 10.4.7 on PowerPC.
Thanks for your help guys. I just needed a pointer. Now I hope I opened the correct ports on my personal firewall
