Before you download or install anything please make sure that it is
accessible from the net. Quite frankly, I'd rather not log on to a
"foreign" box but if there's no other way, ...

You can check your iptables rules with "sudo iptables -Lnv".

You might as well check that nfs is running properly with "netstat
-ntulp" and "rpcinfo -p" on the nfs server and, from another box,
(three nmaps are overkill but it's quick and should be short):
rpcinfo -p nfs_server
nmap -n -sT nfs_server
nmap -n -sS nfs_server
nmap -n -sU nfs_server
