I'm trying to mount a remote dvd drive via NFS on a local computer so that I can play the dvds remotely. Normal NFS mounts work fine, but if I try to mount /dev/dvd or /media/cdrom, I get a permission denied:
sudo mount boron:/media/cdrom dvd
mount: boron:/media/cdrom failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
however, on the server, /var/log/messeges prints:
May 7 01:02:02 boron rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from mythtv:1022 for /media/cdrom (/media/cdrom)
I've checked /etc/exports many times and have verified that there is no error in there. Is there a special way to mount devices rather than regular files?
