I don't have the same setup, but perhaps my notes can help. I use Ubuntu
server as a NAS and Ubuntu desktop as a client. The client mounts the NAS
via NFSv4 at boot via /etc/fstab. I used this guide:
Does your NAS only support NFSv3?

My hosts.allow/deny look like so:
portmap mountd nfsd statd lockd rquotad : 192.168.1.10 192.168.1.11
portmap mountd nfsd statd lockd rquotad : ALL
Perhaps you need to list statd here?
