setting up nfs

I'm using mediaone, with a linksys router, and I'm trying to connect to a machine that a friend of mine is hosting for me.
I can ssh to this machine, ping it, etc. I set up nfs on that computer, and the output of rpcinfo -p on that machine is:
program vers proto port
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100024 1 udp 749 status
100024 1 tcp 751 status
100003 2 udp 2049 nfs
100003 2 tcp 2049 nfs
100005 1 udp 821 mountd
100005 2 udp 821 mountd
100005 1 tcp 824 mountd
100005 2 tcp 824 mountd
I have an entry in the hosts.allow file with the mediaone dynamic ip of my client machine, and the filesystem in my exports file.
When I try to mount the drive, nothing happens for a while, then I get:
mount: RPC: Timed out
rpcinfo -p <hostname> gives me this output:
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection timed out
Am I doing this right?

A train station is where a train stops.
A bus station is where a bus stops.
So now you know why they call this a workstation.
