Problem in accessing NFS

Hi guys,

I am new to linux, I have fedora core 5 installed on my system, I have shared a directory through NFS, my /etx/exports file contains the following script,
/home/test *(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

I'm able to mount the NFS from my PC into a local directory, but When I try mounting it from another PC connected to my network, It displays failure message
"mount failed: server is down". Please suggest me what could b the reason for this problem and how cud I overcome this problem.

Expecting for ur valuable ideas...

Thanx Frenz, In advance....

Could be a firewall/iptables issue.
Or it could be that portmap listens to localhost
try killing portmap and restarting it with no option.
