Nfs server does not provide routing

It default routes through interface 1. Request was getting to server but =
not back to client

the system seems to be working as I hoped once I upgraded rh80 to nfs =
utils 1.05

Thanks for the help

It is entirely possible that I mis-diagnosed your problem.  If your
NFS server is the only route between the two subnets, I probably did. =20

However I cannot think of any recent change in nfs-utils that would
affect anything like your problem, but then my memory isn't perfect.

I suggest you test your configuration and if it works, be happy.

When I had the problem I mentioned, I used rpcinfo for testing:

  rpcinfo -u $HOSTNAME mountd 3

If run this on a representative sample of clients, using a
representative sample of server IP address, and it always works, then
I guess your problem has gone away
