iptables dynamic port script for NFS

May 10, 2008

Some days ago I talked with a friend (here a link to his homepage) about firewalls and file servers and he told me he has a iptables script which adapts to the NFS ports automatically. I asked him for this script and here is it. Thx Hannes for the script.


# rpcinfo -p prints a list of all registered RPC programs
# sed -e '1D' removes the headline
# tr -s ' ' '\t' replaces repeated spaces with a single tab
# cut -f 4,5 we only need the protocol- and port-columns
# sort | uniq removes the duplicate lines
# now we have lines with the needed protocol and port but for splits
# this lines to single words so we have to store the protocol
for l in `rpcinfo -p | sed -e '1D' | tr -s ' ' '\t' | cut -f 4,5 | sort | uniq`
do
  case $l in
    tcp)
      SYN=--syn
      PROTOCOL=$l
        ;;
    udp)
      SYN=
      PROTOCOL=$l
        ;;
    *)
      iptables -A INPUT -p $PROTOCOL --dport $l $SYN -j ACCEPT
    ;;
  esac
done
