[nfsd] Server can't contact local portmap, client can!

I'm trying to setup nfsd on my i586 Arch. I've built a custom kernel with NFS v2 and v3 server & client support in it. I've also installed the nfs-utils (v1.0.6-2) package.


sshd : all 
telnet : 10.0.1., localhost
portmap: 10.0.1., localhost
lockd: 10.0.1., localhost
rquotad: 10.0.1., localhost
mountd: 10.0.1., localhost
statd: 10.0.1., localhost





To get the NFSd running, I start portmapper with its rc.d-script and then the nfsd-script.

The nfsd-script won't work: it's complaining about portmapper:

portmap: server localhost not responding, timed out
RPC: failed to contact portmap (errno -5).

I made sure portmapper was running, BUT this is the strange part: if I try "rpcinfo -p <serverip>", I get an error (rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Invalid argument). When I run the same command on a client PC in the network, it works fine:

  program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper

I'm stuck. roll

A bus station is where a bus stops.
A train station is where a train stops.
On my desk I have a workstation.
