You're very welcome.
Before you start explaining the problem let me make something else clear.
I answer questions on the TAG mailinglist when I know the answer.
The questions and answers are publicized to allow others to benefit from
the process and aside from that it's fun ;-)
I do NOT offer personal linux consulting through email. And if I had the
time to do that I'd doubt you'd be willing to pay my consultancy rates :-)
That is why I have reforwarded you mail sent to my personal address to
the mailing list.

I suggest you check if the server has nfs-over-tcp support compiled in
I'm no expert on your system but you could check this by checking
gzcat /proc/config.gz | grep NFS
