Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

By default, some NFS services (server_side) use well-known ports but some normally just use random ports.  The use of random ports does not work so well with strict firewall rules blocking random yet unknown ports.  So, sometimes it is best to manually alter or specify static ports for NFS services (server_side) to use.

This document describes how to configure NFS services (server-side) to run on static ports as an alternative.
