NFS mount fails


The technology behind Web access protection breaks the connection to NFS mounts. The NFS server's default configuration expects the client to connect from a port under 1025 (accessible to the root). The connection intercepted by Web access tries to connect from a random port above 1024, resulting in the server's denial.


You can avoid denial by changing the NFS mount server configuration to insecure. This allows the client to connect from a random port to the server.

1.On the NFS server machine, open the /etc/exports file in your text editor as privileged user. In this example we use nano:

nano /etc/exports

2.Set your shared directory to insecure and save the changes. An example of the NFS shared directory:


3.Restart the NFS server. Run the following command as privileged user:

systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server
