I ran into this problem just yesterday. I've always been confused on where
portmap needs to be running. It only needs to be running when the client
mounts the volumes. In Redhat, the netfs init script starts portmap,
mounts the volumes, and then stops portmap. So that's probably the best
way to go.

And as portmap is a security problem, it is preferable not to run it full
time. Even if you have it blocked in hosts.deny.

Last week I left two Windows XP CD's on my dashboard in plain view.
Someone broke into my car and left two more.
