Traffic rules to allow WG zone to access nfs share on LAN zone

I created a wireguard interface and assigned it to the 'wg' firewall zone. I have an NAS running on the 'lan' zone. I want to allow the 'wg' zone to access the nfs exports on the target box so I created this rule but that is not enough. What am I missing?

config rule
  option name 'wg nfs share 2'
  option src 'wg'
  option dest 'lan'
  list dest_ip ''
  option target 'ACCEPT'
  option dest_port '111 2049 20048'

On the Linux NAS:

# rpcinfo -p | grep nfs
    100003    3   tcp   2049  nfs
    100003    4   tcp   2049  nfs
    100227    3   tcp   2049  nfs_acl

# rpcinfo -p | grep mountd
    100005    1   udp  20048  mountd
    100005    1   tcp  20048  mountd
    100005    2   udp  20048  mountd
    100005    2   tcp  20048  mountd
    100005    3   udp  20048  mountd
    100005    3   tcp  20048  mountd

111 and 2049 are enough for my nfs share. Verify that there isn't anything blocking the packets on the nfs server.

I am using ufw on the NAS. I created the following in /etc/ufw/applications.d/custom and allowed it. I can now connect the server from an iOS device using wireguard.


Something is still not configured correctly. I am using the vlc app on iOS. What is odd is that I see the exports in vlc, but I cannot access them.

I got to thinking that the connection through wg would not have the same IP range as the other clients on my lan interface, so I modified /etc/exports on the NAS to cover the IP range of the wg interface which is basically just mirrored the entries like so:

### this is on the linux NAS, not the OW router
# cat /etc/exports


After restarting the nfs daemon, I can now browse into these locations on the iOS device but when I try to play one of the media files in vlc, it does not playback. The vlc screen is just blank. If I look at the output of wg on the OW router, the transfer/received amount are both incrementing higher indicating that data is flowing.

What could be preventing that app from rendering the video? If I playback the identical video without connecting over wg, it plays back fine.
