          needed some high numbered ports, right now, 43509, but that changes
          from time to time. I have to keep checking the firestarter events
          log on both the server and client to see what needs to be opened. I
          usually block by defaullt and open only the ports needed. Perhaps
          that wont work with NFS?

          If anyone can offer some suggestion I would appreciate it.

        Read the source[1] and eSearch for "nfs static ports". You'll
        get your answer by the time you're done reading.

        [1] http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-5-manual/Deployment_Guide-en-US/s2-sysconfig-nfs.html

        The key file is /etc/sysconfig/nfs.

       Use nfs4?  One of the features is that ports don't move around.  In
       fact you only need one port, 2049/tcp.

            http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-nfsv4.html

       Fedora works just fine with only nfs4 enabled and has for the last
       couple of releases.

Thanks to both of you for some very good help. The man page contains a lot of information and although it referred to nfs4, etc. I could not make the connection with the symptoms I saw.
       Thanks for the help.
