Host unable to mount NFS mounts

I have two systems where one is exporting a filesystem, and another where is mounting the exported filesystem via NFS. The two systems were recently reconfigured to use DNS.

The client system is now unable to mount the NFS filesystem. A check of the server's messages file had the following entry:
<hostname> portmap[7726]: connect from <ip address> to getport(nfs): request from unauthorized host
A check of the NFS services on the exporting system indicated that all hosts have read/write access. I also ran the showmount -a command, and the output was the following:

All mount points on <hostname>:
The portmap, rcp.statd, rpc.rquotad, rpc.mountd, and rpc.idmapd daemons all appear to be running on the exporting system.

What other steps do I need to take in order to correct this problem? Thanks.

Can the NFS server resolve the host by it's IP Address? What happens if you use the IP Address of the client in the /etc/exports file?
