Maybe this is a dumb question but do I have to set up an nfs server on 
one of the server peers in my gluster volume in order to connect to  the 
volume with nfs?  I did a port scan on a couple of the peers in my 
cluster and port 2049 was cloased. I'm thinking maybe you have to 
configure an nfs server on one of the peers and it can read/write to the 
gluster volume like it would any disk. But then what do  these  commands do:

  gluster volume set <VOLNAME> nfs.disable off
  gluster volume set <VOLNAME> nfs.disable on

The  documentation on the gluster.org web site seems to imply that yu 
don't need an nfs server. It specifically says you need the nfs-common 
package on your servers. That would imply you don't need the 
nfs-kernel-server package, right? See:
