[CentOS] NFS problem

I'm trying to NFS-mount a CentOS directory on my Fedora laptop,
but I find I can only do this is I turn off the firewall
on the CentOS server.

If instead I go to system-config-securitylevel-tui on the server,
and allow NFS4, this does not do the trick.
Nor does allowing port 2049.

What do I need to allow?

[I should say that the CentOS server is remote,
and difficult to access directly;
that is why I used system-config-securitylevel-tui,
rather than system-config-securitylevel .]
