The -noresvport option specifies that NFS RPC calls for the filesystem do
not have to come from reserved ports. Normally, clients are required to
use reserved ports for operations. Using this option decreases the secu
rity of your system.
The -noresvmnt option specifies that mount RPC requests for the filesys
tem do not have to come from reserved ports. Normally, clients are re
quired to use reserved ports for mount requests. Using this option de
creases the security of your system.
So you need to add '-noresvport,-noresvmnt' to you /etc/export line.
