I suspect that the server's mountd daemon isn't able to resolve
the client's IP address to a name... check the syslogs on the
server.

Quick kludge (if this is in fact the problem) is to create an
entry for the client in it's /etc/hosts file, or put an entry
into it's dns server's database (which should restrict 192.168/16
for internal uses, but you already know that:)

Or /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} could be denying portmapper access
(that's happened to me before too :)

I'd be interested if it was a dns lookup failure that was the
problem...  good luck.
