I’ve setup nfs4 server on opensuse 12.1 desktop. On another desktop I have nfs client and rpcbind running and firewall disabled. When I go to yast -> nfs client and do a search on the nfs server host, it does not find any.
On contrary, if I test on another windows 7 ultimate pc, I can mount and browse the nfs share without a problem.
I’ve also tried disabling the firewall on the server pc but still no succes…
Oops, It seems my nfs client machine was connected to a router not of mine. Connected to the correct router and now I can connect to the nfs server if I disable the firewall on the NFS client. If I turn it on, I can’t connect…
I have checked the option to open a port in the firewall on the client and have added two extra ports to FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP: 111 2049.
What else do I need to change in the firewall?
The firewall on the server was disabled as well. If I enable it and I can’t connect the client even if the client-firewall is disabled…
Found it: I used “" on the nfs server as the host name. If I use the full client ip adress instead of "”, then it works.
One problem remaining: If I shut the server down while client had the nfs mounted (read only), the client seems to hang. Nothing seems to respond anymore and I have to reboot. After reboot, client is ok…
I use user,noauto as mount options, so that the mount is not done at boot time, and can be mounted by the user when needed.

If the mount is something vital… else, it is a bug you should report in
