as far as the firewall, even though much online docs day that nfs4 does
not require portmap and that the only port required to be open on the
server is 2049 tcp. my experience with fedora and nfs4 (since fc3 )is
that a connection will fail   if port 111 tcp/udp is not opened on the
server. why that is: i don't know. i'm wondering myself.

try the firewall first, with selinux in permissive mode.  once you've
established connectivity, check the logs for selinux problems. -a
