[Shorewall-users] NFS problem

-As a starting poing, the following protocols/ports may be involved:
-tcp/sunrpc,540:1023
-udp/sunrpc,540:[1023-],nfs

-nfs is port 2049
-sunrpc is port 111

Remember -- When the NFS client contacts the NFS server, it does so via
portmapper 
on 111 to find out what port to use for NFS. Portmapper then tells the
client to connect 
on port xxx. That port number will change with each connection. You may
have to force 
NFS to use a specific port.
