Hm, wait, there should be a port# after the colon.  Go to Services->NFS
settings (the wrench icon) and make sure the three "bind port" fields
are *really* empty, no spaces or tabs hidden in them. 

Make sure NFS is set to "start on boot".  Then reboot.  Don't rely on
freenas' rc service framework when troubleshooting weird stuff like

Beyond that... dunno, let us know when you figure it out?
