No, it is identified by name. This works just fine on another machine here.
I put in 192.168.3.0/24 and it mounted. I did not expect this.
The ip correctly resolves on the server:
[eyal at e7a ~]$ host e4.eyal.emu.id.au
e4.eyal.emu.id.au has address 192.168.3.4
[eyal at e7a ~]$ host 192.168.3.4
184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer e4.eyal.emu.id.au.
There must be away to not use the ip in /etc/exports though?

Left is at the default install state.
