was working till I updated the system and added iptables, but i havnt started iptables as of yet, or made any rules.

Code:
/etc/init.d/nfs start
 * Starting idmapd ...                                                                                               [ ok ]
 * Starting NFS statd ...                                                                                            [ ok ]
 * Starting NFS daemon ...
 * Error starting NFS daemon                                                                                         [ !! ]
 * Starting NFS mountd ...
Cannot register service: RPC: Timed out
 * Error starting NFS mountd
Code:
tail /var/log/messages
