Here is my note regarding how to make this work:

Create the file "/etc/sysconfig/nfs" and add the following contents:


 Append the following to the file "/etc/services":

rquotad 4004/tcp # rpc.rquotad tcp port
rquotad 4004/udp # rpc.rquotad udp port

 Restart the nfs services

>From there, open these ports -> 111:tcp, 111:udp, 2049:tcp, 2049:udp,
4001:tcp, 4001:udp, 4002:tcp, 4002:udp, 4003:tcp, 4003:udp, 4004:tcp,
