If I turn off the firewall, I can access the NFS system without difficulty using the Novell Client for Vista 1.0. However, with the OneCare firewall on, I get the "The tree or server cannot be found. Choose a different tree or server." error message when I try to connect.

If I open all the TCP/IP ports in the firewall from 1-65535, I can login. I assume I don't need all ports open, but I can not find anywhere a specific list of needed ports (at least not a list that has worked) needed to access Novell servers from a Vista client running the firewall with Windows OneCare. How can I do this?

Thank you,
