Firewall setup for NFS server, Suse 9.1


How can I setup the firewall on Suse 9.1 so that it can allow NFS serving (without completely turning off the firewall)?

I have two Suse 9.1 boxes on my local network. The only way one can access the other via NFS is if I turn off the firewall on the serving box. I tried adding "nfs" and/or 2049 to the allowed ports in the GUI configuration, but that did not help.

It requires editing of init scripts to force nfs to use specific ports for everything, and adding the rules to iptables.

I'm pretty sure there is an rpc (Remote procedure calls, nfs uses rpc for various things) match for iptables, but I have no experience with it.

Good Luck,
chris
