    Did you miss create sub directory /mnt/nfsshare to map nfs file system on?

    This is one of the easiest installation. But this is not as simple as this is mentioned in the blog. Here the consideration is taken when the Firewall is stopped.

    Which specific ports to be allowed for NFS server to work properly. Only allowing NFS service is firewall is not working. It keeps on giving error of portmapper and something like that.

    I am doing it on CentOS 7, NFS server does not work independently so allowing NFS port is not making any difference
