/etc/hosts permissions OK? I ask because it should be worl-readable
and you sudo'd it.

IIRC (it's been a long time), the RPC stuff needs to be running for nfs
locks, status, etc. Are they? I can't confirm this because I don't have
any nfs stuff running.

But I don't recall whether server/clioent needs any/all on one or both.

Anyway, that and portmap? Not sure. /etc/hosts/{deny,allow} come into
play if portmap is in use.

I don't recall dinking with the nfs service, so I ps'd it.

rpc       2284     1  0 05:36 ?        00:00:00 portmap
rpcuser   2310     1  0 05:36 ?        00:00:00 rpc.statd
root      2356     1  0 05:36 ?        00:00:00 rpc.idmapd

Maybe that gives a clue?

Showmounts might help you out (server side only?).
