Good luck with it.

It was quite a few years ago, but I had to run an nfs server off of my laptop,
and I was using shorewall. There are options to specify the ports that are
used by rpc.mountd and rpc.statd . You can set these options
in /etc/default/nfs-* (I just looked at /etc/default/nfs-common and found a
link to the debian wiki, which may help a bit. --
http://wiki.debian.org/SecuringNFS). I just looked at the page and it's
pretty good. It would have been nice if there was a wiki back when I was
trying to figure this out on my own.

I run windows on the VM's also. I'm getting closer to making an automated
network installer that will install windows machines. I'm not sure if you've
experienced any problems using windows on the VM's yet, but I have to enable
the IO APIC option on the XP and Vista VM's.
