AMD automount not working

I all,

I'm trying to have amd (automounter) running on my DF system to mount
nfs folders served by freenas.

I'm using amd, but maybe an another tool is better for that ?

2 concerns:

amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /net /etc/ "
Any samples, tips/tricks are welcome.

Mounting manually works great, but via amd I receive an error like:
" nfs server pid474 at dfly:/net: not responding"
Which sounds strange because I can mount it via the mount command.

My is:

/defaults       opts:=rw;type:=nfs
share            rhost:=nas;rfs:=/mnt/vol1/share

My rc.conf is:
amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /net /etc/ "

(/.amd_mnt and /net are existing)

So an another question is why using version 6.0.3 ?
Laststable version is 6.1.5

Even Freebsd is using that last

maybe a nfs version conflicts with freenas ?

many thanks
