NFS share not mounting


I have two SUSE servers (SLES10_sp2) that I am trying to link via NFS. Server 1 has novell OES2-sp1 running on it and has one volume shared via NCP. Server 2 is straight SLES10_2 with no edirectory or other software installed. Server 2 has a directory in an EXT3 partition that I need to share to Server 1 for software installation purposes. On Server 2 I have gone into YAST-->Network Services-->NFS Server and enabled NFS and opened the firewall, and selected the directory I wish to export. YAST accepted this just fine, and if I do a cat /etc/exports I get:
/mntpoint/directory *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)

On Server 1 I created under /mnt a directory called directory2, then executed the following command as root:
mount XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:/mntpoint/directory /mnt/directory2

The message I get returned is:
mount server reported tcp not available, falling back to udp
Mount: RPC: Program not registered

What am I doing wrong or missing?

Thanks

I would check that portmap is running.

Was able to get this working, had to enable v4 and change no_root_squash to root_squash, was then able to mount it.
