Hmm... is there a way to do this securely?  NFS is notorious for weak
security (though probably not more so than SMB).  I'm not sure if a
machine can run NFS securely on an internet-accessible interface.  I would
like to try it but it seems thorny.  Here is an example of what I would
like to do *securely*:

internet firewall
       hub--bastion host (iSeries exporting some directory)
internal firewall
   clients (NFS mount directories from iSeries)

Can this be done in a secure fashion?  My understanding is that it can't.
