mountd port?

Asked by tmerriam on 2009-09-02

I'm having trouble getting mountd to bind to a specified port so that I can get it through the firewall. I see where mountd is called in nfs-kernel-server and that it reads RPCMOUNTDOPTS, but when I have RPCMOUNTDOPTS="-p 32767" mountd starts on a random port anyway. From the shell, I can do rpc.mountd -p 32767 and it takes it, but I was wondering how to get the official script to work. Any suggestions?

After editing the /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server you need to restart nfs-kernel-server with:
sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server restart
after that you can use
rpcinfo -p
and check to make sure mountd is bound to the correct port. It worked for me.
