This only applies to RHEL 8/CENTOS 8 and Fedora 34

I've had a problem getting my Indy running 6.5.22 to mount NFS shares on RHEL8 and it's taken me forever the figure out how to fix it because so much is undocumented.

NFS/ONC3 on 6.5.22 will only use NFS v3 with UDP which is not turned on by default on RHEL 8-based distributions. The error messages in IRIX and on Linux are not very helpful. In order to fix this you'll need to add

Code:
udp=y
vers3=y
in the [nfsd] section of /etc/nfs.conf

Voila. It's stupid simple and hopefully will help someone with that aggrivation.
