Try turning your firewall off completely for a while - "service iptables stop" 
or "service ip6tables stop" will do it from the shell.

I don't bother with firewalls on my internal network machines, but then my 
kids are only young!

If turning it off makes nfs work then turn it back on using service iptables 
start and send the output from service iptables status to the list.
