Crazy sudden NFS problems.

Please, PLEASE help me, I've driven myself crazy the last few hours
trying to fix this.
Yesterday, my NFS mounts worked perfectly. Today, they don't.
My NFS client (Feisty) cannot mount stuff from my NFS server (Dapper).
Waits about 45 seconds after the mount request, and I get:
> tom at typhon:/net$ sudo mount public
> mount: RPC: Timed out
Now, that part of this that's *weird* is that, this is what I see in my
Sep 14 23:16:38 localhost mountd: authenticated mount request from
typhon.local:803 for /stor1/public (/stor1/public)
That seems to imply *success*, but this message doesn't show up in my
log until about 15 seconds AFTER the client has timed out!
Up until yesterday, the mounts were instant, and reliable. I have NO
IDEA what could have changed in that time! :-(
I've spent hours playing with portmap, nfs-kernel-server
nfs-user-server, uninstalling reinstalling reonfigurge
purging&reinstalling etc. I can't take it anymore!!!
My server can mount it's own NFS shares.
My client can host NFS shares and mount them (through localhost)
My server can even mount shares hosted on my client!
But I *CAN'T* do the one thing I need to do, mount the server shares on
I'm not running a firewall on either box.
Any opinions? It's driving me CRAZY!!! CRAZY I TELL YOU!!!
