I set up my NFS server without doing any bigger changes in configuration files. After that I added these entries to /etc/exports(both paths are valid) on server(


Then I restarted the computer and I tried to get exports list:

$ showmount -e

According to this output there's not problem with connection. Now I want to mount /export to client filesystem(

sudo mount -t nfs4 /mnt

After typing this there's no output and I can't do anything. Another terminal line start is not being displayed. Command is stuck.

Does anybody know am I doing wrong? Please help me.
