NFSv4 Being Blocked By Firewall


I have a bridge br0 which runs on my host. I have a kvm guest(192.168.1.5) that is attached to the bridge. I am using NFSv4 to share a filesystem on the host with the kvm guest. But for some reason my firewall blocks a NFSV4 connection with iptables -I INPUT -s 192.168.1.5 --dport 2049 -j ACCEPT.


For troubleshooting I am not running any firewall on the KVM Guest.

Of course, with the firewall down on the host NFSv4 works with no problems.

What exacty is wrong?

You can follow this FAQ. The basic problem is that you need to tell NFS to use specific ports, which you can then allow through the firewall.

Isn't that a little outdated? NFSv4 is completely different than NFSv3. From what I have read, with NFSv4 you only need the port open for the NFS daemon.
