How to overcome NFS through firewall issues using NFS4, while maintaining compatibility with NFS3 clients (Draft)

NFS4 server uses port 2049 only, no port mapping

Run “startsrc -s nfsrgyd” on client and server

Must use public file system, list the available using “nfsd -getnodes”, or else you’ll get an error indicating “No such filesystem or directory”

Can export for version 3 and for version 4 simultaneously (2 versions of the same export), Windows services for Unix seem to support only V3
