how to get nfsv4 mount working without using insecure mount option suse linux 11
Posted on 2014-11-26
I'm trying to mount a filesystem with nfs4 on a dmz host, we allowed port 2049 through network firewall,
so mount is only working when given insecure option in /etc/exports in server.
We want it working with out that option, when tried we get
mount -t nfs4 -o defaults,timeo=14,intr,port=2049 server:/exportimport /exportimport
mount.nfs4: Operation not permitted error on client
and on server we see below message
nfsd: request from insecure port x.x.x.x, port=49754!
Now is there a way to force client request secure ports during the mount..? and can that port be 2049 ..? can somebody explain please. thank you
Both machines nfs source and server are suse linux 11 sp2.
