[Beowulf] automount on high ports

we need to automount NFS directories on high ports to increase the number of possible mounts.
Currently, we are limited up to ca 360 mounts.

The NFS-server exports with the option 'insecure' but the mounts still end up on ports <1024 on the client side.

Is there a way to enable automounts on higher ports? How can it be done manually:
mount -t nfs -o ....?

We are using autofs version 5.

Thank you,
