	Do you have RPCbind running? (Once upon a time it was called port
mapper) Just go to /etc and add NFSSERVER=YES to rc.conf, which may need
you to reboot. You can also try /etc/rc.d/nfsserver start. This is all off
the top of my head so these names may not be exactly correct, but it
should be a start.
