Hi,

quoting http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Status/Squeeze:

"NFS exports do not seem to work when installing 
main-server+thin-client-server. The problem is that portmap only allow 
connections from localhost, and this can be changed using preseeding. There 
is work in Debian to replace portmap with rpcbind. We might want to do the 
same."

Filing with severity serious as NFS is one of the core services of the 
Debian Edu main server.


cheers,
	Holger

Not quite sure why this is filed against the metapackage and not the
d-e-install package.  Anyway...

I believe this preseeding setting in
debian-edu-install/base-config/defaults.networked will solve the
issue:

  # Make sure portmap do not only accept connections from localhost
  # Needed for Squeeze
  portmap/portmap/loopback boolean false

Happy hacking,

I've tested this preseeding, and it do not seem to work (even when
fixing the typo ("portmap/portmap/loopback" -> "portmap portmap/loopback")
in it).  I suspect this is a problem in the portmap package, but have
not investigated why the preseeding fail.

With the preseeding in place, the content of /etc/default/portmap
still make portmap fail to listen on all interfaces.

Happy hacking,

I've now investigated, and the problem is with the portmap package,
reported as #571131.  I've spoken with Anibal about it, and he hoped
to have a fix uploaded in a day or so.  Hopefully it will both revert
the default to listen to all interfaces, and also to make it possible
to preseed the setting.

Happy hacking,

This issue should be fixed when the new portmap package version
6.0.0-2 enter testing in 4-5 days.  The status can be tracked on
<URL: http://packages.qa.debian.org/p/portmap.html >.

We should still consider switching to rpcbind as a replacement for
portmap, to get IPv6 support.

Happy hacking,

Version: 1.507

The new portmap package entered testing, and the NFS export problem
seem to be solved.  Not quite sure which version to use when closing
this, but picking the one in unstable just to have some version number
to use.
