[mythtv-users] OT: NFS RPC: Timed Out

Sorry for posting this here, but I'm at my wit's end.  I have a MythTV
installation on a Gentoo box, a frontend box running gentoo, and a file
server running gentoo.  I've had NFSv3 installed for quite some time and it
worked beautifully to serve video files from my server to my frontend box.

After doing an emerge -e system, my NFS doesn't seem to work. Every time I
try to mount a file system on my frontend machine, this is what I get:

tiax ~ # mount /mnt/pictures
mount: *RPC*: *Timed* out
mount: backgrounding "192.168.1.102:/mnt/backup/pictures"

The output of /var/log/messages on my server machine is this:

Mar  3 09:50:01 janjansen cron[13102]: (root) CMD (test -x
/usr/sbin/run-crons && /usr/sbin/run-crons )

I have NFS version 3 server and client built into the kernel on the server
machine. I have NFS version 3 client built into the frontend machine. All
the machines have nfs-utils version 1.0.6-r6 installed from gentoo portage.
I've also tried upgrading to the "unstable" version of nfs-utils which is
version 1.0.12, on both the server and the backend.

my /etc/exports on the server:

# /etc/exports: NFS file systems being exported.  See exports(5).

#Shared Portage
/usr/portage
192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,subtree_check,no_root_squash,rw)

#file server stuff
/mnt/backup/music       192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)
/mnt/archive/video      192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)
/mnt/backup/games       192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)
/mnt/backup/pictures    192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)
/mnt/archive/DVD        192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)
/mnt/archive/GAME_ISOs  192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0(async,no_subtree_check,rw)

I don't have IP Tables installed on any of these machines. They're all
behind my router's firewall. Any suggestions? Any other information that I
could post that would be helpful?

Thanks for taking the time to look at this for me!
