I am grateful for the new knfsd-1.3.3 as it simplifies life
behind our firewall. Unfortunately, when starting mountd
with the --port option, it attempts to start both version 1
and version 2 of mountd on that port and the daemon does not
seem to be designed to handle both versions on a single
port. This results in a failed start with an error message
that the address is already in use. A work around is to
start just the verson 1 server (this seems to be the one
most applications care about), or to use multiple
invocations to get multiple versions (each listening on a
different port). However, it would be nice for mountd to
maintain the behavior of the user level nfs-server and start
both (all) versions on the single port.

Bug 3274 is being closed as it seems that this has been fixed in the latest
versions of nfs-utils.
