    Default NFS client opensuse 12.3 and LXDE

    NFS client cannot find NFS server caused by firewall blocking
    Which firewall port should I enable to find the NFS server in Yast ?
    I have added NFS client allowed services.

    You don't say which version of anything you are running. You don't
    provide any NFS config information. You don't even indictae whether it's
    the firewall on the server or the client that you thing is blocking, let
    alone provide any evidence that it really is the firewall causing the
    problem.

    I'd suggest setting up both server and client using YaST and then report
    some actual facts to us about what happens.

    The Yast NFS-client module can do that for you:
    Yast - Network services - NFS-client - NFS-settings-tab
    Check "open port in firewall".

    FYI: Network services that require (an) open port(s) in the firewall have this checkbox. When you keep that in mind, the firewall isn't that much of an issue, since the Yast modules for other services will take care of it for you.

    Until you told us this, there's no way we would have known this.

    I have a similar issue, actually - my workaround (because my systems run
    24x7) is just to shut the firewall down while mounting the volumes. The
    issue is that NFS uses ephemeral ports (above 32768), and because those
    ports are picked more or less at random, configuring the firewall becomes
    a bit more difficult.

    I found this just now:

    which may help.

    I don't see anywhere in this thread where you have installed the nfs server from Yast.

    You know, go to YAST, Software Management, and install yast2-nfs-server and nfs-kernel-server, then go to Yast, System, System Services (runlevel), and make sure nfs and nfsserver are enabled.

    Bob.
    Yast -Software -pattern - check fileserver.
    NFS server is working fine no problem.

    Firewall is off otherwise it is unworkable for nfs clients.

    He wouldn't need to on the system that's used as the client. I made the
    assumption the NFS server is set up properly on the server that's hosting
    the exported filesystem.
