for the hint, but thats not the point, i found now

While most features of *SuSEfirewall2* have an equivalent in
*firewalld* there is one major feature missing: The support for
rpcbind based protocols like NFSv3 and ypserv/ypbind.

with other words, its a back-step: there is no possibility to get
firewalld running with the nfs3-stuff-random-ports assigned over
rpcbind =========================

This is a showstopper for me as well. Unless there's an answer/fix soon, I
shall have to remove firewalld and use another firewall eg. shorewall. I
generally prefer to use what is packaged with the distribution, but the new
firewall does not seem ready yet. :-(

Well, open bugzillas so that they are aware.
