You may want to include more details as to how you made sure
portmapper was runing and how you shutdown the firewall, but here
are some things I would try.

>From the client PC run:

# rpcinfo -p <servername>

See if you have the following lines:

    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper

Also on the server PC to be absolutely sure the firewall is
disabled run the following:

# service iptables stop
# service ipchains stop

You may have already tried these things, but since the original
email does not mention exactly how you confirmed the firewall was
not running and that portmapper was running it may help provide a
bit more information to the list.

Hope this helps some...
