Description of problem:
In the article:


Chris Lowth describes how to nail down all the various NFS server components to
use defined ports, enabling firewalls rules to be effective.

Currently, the RH /etc/init.d/nfs script consults the /etc/sysconfig/nfs file
for sysadmin defined values including specifying the MOUNTD_PORT.

I've written a patch to the /etc/init.d/nfslock SysV init script to also make
use of the /etc/sysconfig/nfs file for specifying the STATD_PORT for use by the
rpc.statd daemon.

I've tested

Please consider applying it.

I just checked rawhide and noticed that nfs-utils-1.0.3-4.1.i386.rpm has my
patch applied.
