NFSv4 over a VPN

Over the Easter weekend, we were visting (fully vaccinated) family. So we were away from the house. Using my WireGuard VPN I was easily able to read email from my home server on my laptop without having to do much to make it all work. I still need to tweak the dynamically generated /etc/resolv.conf file, but I can live with that.

For a laugh I tried to see if NFS would work over WireGuard. Other than adding my machine's VPN name (already in BIND) to the exports file, nothing actually needed to be changed, and autofs started working as if the laptop was at home, and I was able to stream FLAC files over NFSv4 fom home to my laptop away from home...!

I think that's a result!
