Have you tried:

- Running 'rpcinfo -p $nfs_server' on the NFS client? You should see
lines for 'mountd' and 'nfs'.
- Running 'showmount $nfs_server' on the NFS client. The NFS client
(or a network/subnet matching the client) should be included in the
list of output.
- Mounting by IP? 'mount ip.of.nfs.server:/export/path /local/path'
