What is the convention wisdom with respect to Linux clients/Linux server? NFS, SMB, both?
Samba SEEMS to provide better throughput yes? NFS presumably uses fewer resources/cycles?
--------- Quality Management - A Commitment to Excellence
You can fix the ports and then play with iptables rules. NFS uses tcp/udp 2049 and if you edit the nfs script under /etc/init.d you will see that if the MOUNTD_PORT variable is set, the daemon is started with the -p option indicating the port that the rpc.mountd process will bind.
You can verify this with 2 commands:
"netstat -anp|grep LISTEN" or "rpcinfo -p localhost"
This will show the process name and port numbers of the RPC services.
