I googled and > followed that advice, which didn't work, so now I have to ask here. But surely lots of people are using NFS on their local LAN without worrying about the firewall? I know less than anyone else contributing to this thread about NFS, but I occasionally find if I have tried to mount on the wrong LAN (I have two WiFi LANs) that I have to give the IP address of the server, viz "sudo mount 192.168.3.1:/common /common". I actually use the shorewall firewall, but surely the standard firewall should allow any local LAN connection?
