You _are_ firewalled, aren't you? If you connect to the public net,
even over a dialup, you should be.

Yes, I am. However, I run *servers* which by their very nature are somewhat more vulnerable, and I worry about them, especially since I'm a newbie which by its very nature is more dangerous. <grin>

It also bugs me that NFS seems to use a lot of pieces... running it or stopping it or understanding it is not as simple as Apache or DHCPd, for example: one daemon and one process to run it all.

I gather you feel that NFS should never be let out of the firewall, then? Is blocking port 111 enough to accomplish this, or are any other ports used?
