It is typically not useful to implement firewall rules between NFS
servers and legitimate NFS clients.
The large number of RPC services using randomly assigned ports needed
by NFS and the fact that machines which trust each other enough to
permit filesharing and generally utilize a common set of directory
services to keep the user/group mappings synced mean that the NFS
server & clients should be considered in the same "trust domain" in

The HEAD of the CVS tree (aka "."). Updating the 7-CURRENT won't
have any affect upon firewall configuration for NFS, however.
