Host does not support NFS

    I am working with webmin on two of my servers.
    1) I have setup NFS server and exported a directory
    2) I manually modified /etc/fstab to do a NFS mount of the exported directory above

    Manual mount of this works perfectly and I am able to browse the mount correctly; however, if I edit this mount in webmin and attempt to save it, I get the error message: "Failed to save mount : The host '[ip address removed]' does not support NFS".

    Why am I able to mount this from command line, but I cannot save the file using webmin? I assume I'm missing an installed package or need to have some other port exposed in iptables, but any input would be great!

    Never mind, I found the solution!

    I setup static ports for rpc.statd, rpc.lockd, and rpc.mountd, then added them to iptables and now it seems to be working properly. Thanks!
