Thanks for the link. I checked it out, but didn't really help much. All it really said in my case was that I was a victim of an overzealous firewall. I recently took a RedHat Firewall class for my job, so I'm going thru those materials to see what the problem is, but nothing as of yet. I still get the same error.
I tried adding a rule on the UDP port 2049 (for NFS), similar to the TCP equivalent, but I still get the same error. I tail'd /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure on my NFS server, but no messages came up when my Myth box tried to NFS-mount to the share.
Any other ideas?
