Hello
am running Linux Mint on desktop, where i've set up to share a video folder over NFS to kodi (Jarvis; which has been loaded onto Amazon fire stick). To this end, i've installed nfs, and set up my /etc/exports file to include all access on the local network:
like this:

Code:
/home/kiers/Videos 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0(ro,insecure)

i've rebooted, and nfs daemons are working. checked via the following command:
Code:
rpcinfo

Also,
Code:
showmount -e
gives the following correct result

/home/kiers/Videos 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0

HOWEVER,
when i go to Kodi (located on 192.168.0.6 as checked in it's settings), and add video files, browse nfs networks, NOTHING shows up! I've even tried entering the servers IP addr (192.168.0.2) and still nothing shows.(kodi says network not detected etc).

(note my desktop pc runs linux mint 17.3; and is connected to a wifi router provided by the cable internet provider; which serves wifi just fine to my amazon fire stick).

Any suggestions? what am i missing?
CLOSED: I Hadn't set up GUFW (firewall) on server to react differently to incoming requests on LAN. SORRY AND THANKS.
