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.

I've spent some time fooling with the configuration. In each case it asks for an "unused" port number. So I simply collected a list of ports that worked from the Firestarter Events Log. As indicated "x=....." below, that seems a rather unscientific approach but it appears to work. Am I painting myself into a corner? I will probably want to access the server from my daughters Apple Mac's eventually!

The client command I'm using: [root box9 bobg]# mount.nfs box48:/home/NFS-files /mnt/home -s

I have not been able to make nfs4 work however although it appears to be present in F-10?

Your help is much appreciated.

           The /etc/sysconfig/nfs may not exist by default on all
           systems. If it does not exist, create it and add the
           following variables (alternatively, if the file exists,
           un-comment and change the default entries as required):

           MOUNTD_PORT="x"        x=57886

               control which TCP and UDP port mountd (rpc.mountd) uses.
               Replace x with an unused port number.

           STATD_PORT="x"         x=52861

               control which TCP and UDP port status (rpc.statd) uses.
               Replace x with an unused port number.

           LOCKD_TCPPORT="x"      x=37277

               control which TCP port nlockmgr (rpc.lockd) uses.
               Replace x with an unused port number.

           LOCKD_UDPPORT="x"      x=39241

               control which UDP port nlockmgr (rpc.lockd) uses.
               Replace x with an unused port number.
