http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello all, I have openSuSE 11.2 installed on 2 different PC's. NFS works fine with the firewall on the server disabled. On the server if I go into yast/NFS Server Configuration and try to check Open Port in Firewall I get this error - Because of SuSE Firewall settings, the port on the following interfaces cannot be opened: eth0. I have also gone into yast/Security and User/Firewall/Allowed Service and under Service to Allow add NFS Server Service to the list, it still wont allow NFS Client to connect after I start the firewall. I even tried adding port 2049 to the tcp and udp ports in the advanced area and I still cannot connect my client to the server when the firewall is running. Please Help (Distributions)
