AirPort, NFS, and firewalls - Mac Networking

Two quesions: 1) Is there a more advanced interface to the AirPort Base station firewall that can be accessed? 2) I'd like to mount an NFS volume (preferably via automount) exported from a Mac with a real IP on to my iBook which is behind an AirPort Extreme Base station on a virtual IP (using NAT). Is there any way to do this? What holes do I need to punch in the various firewalls to make this happen and how can I do it? I'm running 10.3.2 on both macines.

    Default AirPort, NFS, and firewalls

    Two quesions:

    1) Is there a more advanced interface to the AirPort Base station
    firewall that can be accessed?

    2) I'd like to mount an NFS volume (preferably via automount) exported
    from a Mac with a real IP on to my iBook which is behind an AirPort
    Extreme Base station on a virtual IP (using NAT). Is there any way
    to do this? What holes do I need to punch in the various firewalls
    to make this happen and how can I do it?

    I'm running 10.3.2 on both macines. I've been hunting for days to track
    down info to do this and am at wits end.

    I think it would be pretty tricky to tunnel NFS over ssh. There is
    SNFS <http://www.math.ualberta.ca/imaging/snfs/>, but I've no idea if this
    works with OS X.

    NFS needs to access the RPC mechanism/daemon and the nfsd daemon.

    From /etc/services, the RPC daemon is on 111:
    sunrpc 111/udp # SUN Remote Procedure Call
    sunrpc 111/tcp # SUN Remote Procedure Call

    While nfs is on 2049:
    shilp 2049/udp nfs #
    shilp 2049/tcp nfs #

    You'll have let those through ports through the filtering
    mechanism.


    Please note that NFS is notoriously bad at security. NFS does not
    have any authentication method except for source/destination IP
    address. It is not wise to allow NFS over an unsecured network.
