Well, I fixed this..  I accidentally setup my reverse zone as as apposed to 192.168.1.  It looks like this also fixed my
NFS woes.  I wonder why it worked before if I need this now.
Hopefully, if it stops working anywhere else someone will come across
this, and learn that they now need reverse DNS working to get NFS
working.  Which is kind of a shame, as I doubt most home users will
even have forward DNS setup.


I would expect adding an entry for to your /etc/hosts on the nfs server to also be a solution, in lieu of configuring private dns.

I was hoping to find an argument that could be added in /etc/sysconfig/nfs to turn off the inverse lookup requirement, but have only found rpc.mountd's -r option which is the opposite of what you need.
