Try "iptables -F" on your NFS server (if you can afford to flush them -
if you're connected to other networks/systems, maybe put a more detailed
allow rule in). Try the mount again.

FC6 also has a *very* irritating habit of switching on SELinux when
you're not looking. Make sure /etc/sysconfig/selinux contains the line
"SELINUX=disabled", and restart (to be sure it's off).
