    Everything seems quite good
    as I can see :
    192.168.2.21 is nfs-server
    192.168.2.21 is dhcp server too

    on this machine, (if ubunutu like ?), what returns
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep rpc

    you should see something like :
    Apr 26 20:51:33 servA rpc.mountd[24580]: authenticated mount request from 192.168.1.24:753 for /data/geexbox-nfs2 (/data/geexbox-nfs2)

    1.nfs-server dhcp-server samba-server is 192.168.2.21
    2.i use centos 7 i can’t find /var/log/syslog XD
    3.I revised the dhcp set up after the gateway has been normal
    But finally the same can not mout the problem

    Although it is made to obtain IP but unable to mount mount
    I guess will not be a network card did not drive success?

    i use this iso —> geexbox-devel-20170426-r75682bb-i386.iso

    1) You should have some logs about that in /var/log/*
    please check
    here maybe : https://docstore.mik.ua/orelly/networking_2ndEd/nfs/ch14_06.htm

    2) hum, I have no more ideas
    is it the same gateway configured in your server ?
    I’m pretty sure that now it’s a problem of gateway, (so the geexbox can not connect the server)
    or a problem with your nfs server (sometimes i have to restart mine even without errors on logs)

    Just a quick note :
    on virtualbox :
    1) I created an isolated debian server for dhcp, nfs, and tftpd-hpa. Installing geexbox on it to allow booting via the network
    2) using a 2nd virtual machine, with no disk, no cdrom, I was able to boot using this server.

    So to summarize, you have a problem with your network or firewall or …

    I will update the documentation to boot from network

    You are using that kind of linux?

    I also use Debian 8 is the same error message
    I really do not know where the problem is

    #11694

    I use debian8 on a virtual machine and geexbox on a virtual machine to isolate them from my real lan.
    So debian8 is the dhcp, tftp and nfs server. Once configured, geexbox boot using nfsroot.
    o to summarize, no problem from our side.
    Now, for you,
    step 1) your dhcp server is (seems) ok : you have an ip and you can go to the next step
    step 2) your tftpd server too (you have already a menu)
    step 3) your nfs server : maybe the problem is here, it’s not necessary a problem with your server
    -> from another computer on your lan , try to mount a nfs share, if you have a problem, maybe check your firewall

    If the client side today I use CD-ROM boot
    And then use nfs to mount server can be successful
    So I will say really do not know the problem is out there
