Cannot mount NFS with option 'nfsvers=3'

    If I try to mount (from the network) a share on a SuSE 10.0 server
    with the option 'nfsvers=3' (to overcome the 2 GB file size limit) I
    get the following:

    $ mount -t nfs -o wsize=8192,rsize=8192,nfsvers=3 192.168.0.2:/backup /
    media/hdd
    mount: RPC: Unable to receive; errno = Connection refused
    mount: nfsmount failed: Bad file descriptor
    mount: Mounting 192.168.0.2:/backup on /media/hdd failed: Bad file
    descriptor

    Any ideas?
    If I omit the nfsvers option, it works fine, but I cannot write files
    larger than 2 GB.

    Does the host actually support nfs v3?
