It was much simpler than I realized, I was running a VPN and once I turned that off, my devices started working!

NetApp’s Simulate ONTAP™ is now shipping for the equivalent of Data ONTAP™ 8.1RC2 – the take away here is that you can now test drive pNFS in a simulator.

It requires a NOW account and it can be downloaded here:
