it shouldn't be localhost, it should be the fqdn of localhost, otherwise
you screw yourself. but i assume you mean it's the same host rather than

and like i said before, it means different things, all boiling down to
"couldn't mount"

in this case, no vlserver. is the vlserver running? is the client asking
it anything? is the server answering?

don't assume client problems are server problems.
