I have set up the NFS Service using these instructions and it was working fine last week but today I get this error:

Root-NFS: Unable to get nfsd port number from server, using default

I restarted the NFS server like this:

sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-­kernel­-server restart

and tried repeatedly but still get the error. When I google the error I see the suggestion

update firewall to pass NFS traffic

How do I update firewall to pass NFS traffic? Or should it be some other issue since it was working fine last week?

Never mind. After lunch the NFS server miraculously started working. Or maybe she is just not an early riser.
