[Shorewall-newbies] Make "no-response"

Thanx for answering me

I have activated shorewall. And then NFS is not functioning on my internal 
network. I want to have that possibility that my "firewall box" ( on 
my internal network) also can have /home/directories which the other boxes in my 
network can access. All the Linux boxes in the network have their specific home 
directories, and also the WinMe box. I also want to have a directory which all 
machines can access.

Now when i try to mount from, the latter can not find 
the former. The NFS export on .1 does seem to function, but .2 can not find .1

I found here that specific ports would have to be opened in order to have NFS 
(on my internal network) fuinction properly. But then I do not want the ports to 
be opened to the internet.
