 Subject:  NFS problem; please help...
 Date:  Thu, 17 Jan 2008 16:33:24 -0500

I just moved my NFS server and clients to my new network w/ a m0n0wall, 
and now I cannot get functioning NFS connections working.

On the clients, I can initially do an NFS mount, and even `ls` down a 
few directories in the mount, but then I always get this as soon as try 
to look in a directory with files:

nfs server not responding

(and worse, I then have to reboot).

NFS mounting between network segments always worked before when I was 
using a PIX, and this is the first major issue I've run into with m0n0wall.

At first I thought it might be because I forgot to create a rule (added 
all the tcp and udp port allows inititially), but then, just until I get 
this worked out, I decided to allow all TCP,UDP and ICMP from the NFS 
client to the NFS sever. I see nothing in the logs that any packets are 
being dropped or rejected.

NFS Client:

I apologize in advance if this is not a m0n0wall issue, but I'm stumped, 
as I said nothing, really changed on the NFS client and server, I just 
moved them off the pix net and onto the m0n0 net. And also, if I take 
another host in the LAN and connect to the NFS server, and set it up in 
/etc/exports on the server, no problem. It's only a problem for clients 
seperated by the m0n0wall.

I'm running FreeBSD 6.2 all around.

Thanks so much in advance for any insight, and if I'm told that this 
cannot be a m0n0wall issue, then I'll take this over to another forum.
