I'm pretty sure your client is using NFSv3, and the ports you need 
opened are for RPC, and they *are* dynamic (so the next time these 
systems reboot, you'd probably need to open different ports, or the 
correct range of ports).

The easiest solution would be to use NFSv4, and not to adjust your 
firewall at all.
