is actually running a public nfs server?

from your machine try:
rpcinfo -p is

and see if it gives you any errors. you should see a list of rpc daemons that are running on the server and what ports they are running on. If you see nothing you probably do not have access to that hosts nfs server.

You should also check the firewall on your local machine, if you are dropping packets on one of the ports used by nfs you will not be able to mount an nfs filesystem.

BUT, if you try to connect to an nfs filesystem and you get an error message like:
mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
it means that you do not have permission to access that filesystem
