Hi,

you'll need at least port 111 (RPC), 2049 (NFS).

The RPC.MOUNTD and RPC.LOCKD use dynamic ports. A stateful firewall should be able to handle this.

If it doesn't work nevertheless you could open all ports above 32000 between the client and the NFS server,
or you could add entries for "mountd" and "lockd" to /etc/services specifying ports of your choice:

mountd  12345/tcp
mountd  12345/udp

lockd  12346/tcp
lockd  12346/udp

"12345" and "12346" are just examples.

Don't specify "12345" if you're using "italk" (I'm rather sure that you aren't, however!).

12346 up to 12752 are good choices, however, because these port are unassigned yet.
