This question already has an answer here:
I have mounted an NFS network share successfully using Webmin. The share seems to be mounted correctly and working correctly. If I login as root I can browse the share just fine.
However, I cannot seem to give another user access to read/write to this network share. When I look at the permissions I can see that it is owned by root and the group crontab can use the share.
$ ls -las 4 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Nov 11 23:35 . 4 drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 4096 Nov 11 23:35 .. 8 drwxrwx---+ 23 root crontab 4096 Feb 15 2013 private
So just to test thing out, I added crontab to my user scott.
$ groups scott adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev crontab lpadmin sambashare
however I still can't access the share.
$ cd private/ -bash: cd: private/: Permission denied
