cannot connect to NFS server when allowing service NFS4 in firewall
Last modified: 2008-01-08 06:05:45 EST
Description of problem:
No connection is possible to the NFS server when allowing service NFS4 in
system-config-firewall. The result of trying to mount a directory is:
# mount x.x.x.x:/this /here
mount: mount to NFS server 'x.x.x.x' failed: System Error: No route to host.
disabling firewall and retrying to mount works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Enable firewall, and allow service NFS4 through system-config-firewall
Steps to Reproduce:
2. enable firewall
3. allow service NFS4
mounting NFS shared directory fails.
mounting NFS shared directory succeeds.
Are you using NFS4 on both sides?
Good point. I should have mount -t nfs4. Thanks.
Closing as NOT A BUG.
