Hi Bob,

That is really good news that you were able to get it working from my suggestion about the firewall.

Any other members can now read about this in the mailing list.

Thanks,
Kevin

Sorry for not responding to this sooner, my birthday came up and then some distractions. Last night was my first chance to revisit this problem. I was able to fix the problem by following your advice and disabling the firewall on the NFS server which is a Fedora 14 x86_64 box. This allowed me to network boot the Overo/Tobi boards. I then checked the kernel messages and realized I must be blocking the rpc.mountd port. A little more research in the Fedora 14 documentation led me to the file /etc/sysconfig/nfs and I set the lockd, mountd, and statd ports to fixed rather than randomly chosen values. Then I re-enabled the firewall and unblocked those ports. Success! I will post this to the wiki later tonight.
