I checked rpcinfo on both machines and saw that the correct ports are being used. I added port 111 to both firewalls (the Myth box and the NFS server) and restarted both, but I still cannot connect. When I try mounting the share from my Myth box now, I get the following timeout errors:
mount: mount to NFS server '192.168.1.102' failed: timed out (retrying)
It does this 4 times and gives up on the 5th. Nothing shows up in /var/log/messages or /var/log/secure on the NFS server. I can successfully SSH over to the NFS server from my Myth box, and ping works as well. Also, I did look at the link that you provided, but nothing in there seemed to apply too well (I'm running FC6 & Myth installed by MythDora 4.0).
Thanks for the help,
