I just took another glance at your email and see you have your server
configured for UDP only, so that explains it.

As noted in the last posting, the current mount_nfs.c switches to
TCP for NFS by default, so...
- add "udp" to your mount options
- add "-t" to your nfs_server_flags

and I think things will work better.

I vaguely recall posting w.r.t. this uses UDP for the mount protocol
and then TCP for NFS by default and didn't really get any responses.
(I'm new to this and probably posted to freebsd-fs or freebsd-arch.)
At that time, I didn't realize the change was post FreeBSD7, so I
didn't do anything more about it.

Good luck with it and let us know how it goes, rick
