Question Can mount one NFS server but not another

we can mount one NFS server just fine, but if we try mounting a share from another NFS server on the same domain we are unable to. We are using Fedora 10. Has anyone run into a problem trying to mount an exported share folder from an NFS server. Some of us get access denied and we've chmod 777 on the exported folder. The export file contains:
/labdocs, sync, no_root_squash)

and thats it. We run exportfs -a -v and it shows up fine. on one of the client systems we try to mount the folder on a directory created by root
mkdir /docs
mount /docs

it either hangs or displays a message access denied

Does anyone know whats going on.

The first place I would look would be in the host machine logs. For me, I would see and entry in /var/logs/messages with an entry for mountd[nnnn]: refused mount request... this might give you a place to start.

Try changing the mask from /24 to and see if it works. I had the same issue and it solved this way. Though this not the proper solution but this may work.
