'rpcinfo -p <server>' will show the ports/proto you need open. However, it should change some each time because rpc.mountd, rpc.statd, and lockd assign ports dynamically. You can set a few NFS options to lock these down: Eg: RPCMOUNTDOPTS="-p 4002" RPCSTATDOPTS="-p 4000" Sadly, I have only ever run an NFS server on Linux, so I do not know if there is a config to set these, or if you have to add the '-p n' to the startup scripts directly. Also, On Linux you must set the lockd port at boot time. Perhaps there is a sysctl for this on FreeBSD?
