NFS and firewall in Fedora 8 environment
1 Can somebody explain the difference between PORTMAP and RPCbind ?
2 When I disable IPtables from the command line, then NFS functions
3 When (with IPtables started) I configure the firewall from the GUI tool (System --> Administration --> Firewall) to allow NFS as trusted service, and this is done of BOTH client and NFS server machine) then I get the famous " no route to host " error.
Then I am also unsure how NFS works in Fedora 8... is RPCbind something new or what is it ?
Do the nfs ports have to configured as static ?
I have read and looked around for docs and howto's etc. but I can not find any explanations or clear directives regarding this issue.
Can you please help ?
