NFS mount from a Solaris 8 ip-multipathing host fails

Description of problem:
I can reliably mount Solaris 8 NFS exports from two hosts that have only one NIC. However, for a Solaris 8 host that has 6 NICs configured for IP multipathing, NFS mounts fail. The mount request simply hangs, and after a few minutes the message "internal error" is printed. A RHEL 5.1 system is able to mount the same filesystem without problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount dna:/export/xyx /mtn
Hangs, never mounts.
This problem is caused by the following iptables entry:
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
This iptables rule was in effect despite the fact that the firewall was disabled
via the GUI. The problems goes away if the iptables service is stopped, and when
the above rule is removed (it apparently gets added by default during install).
