did you do "exportfs -a" or restart/reload nfs-kernel-server after
editing /etc/exports?

yes, that is possible. if server and client can't resolv each others
names mounting will be painfully slow, because nfsd tries to resolv the
hostname. setting up an dnsd or editing /etc/hosts is not requiered but 
you should do it anyways.

if you deny connects in /etc/hosts.deny you need to put something like
this in /etc/hosts.allow
have a look at iptables -nv -L too, if it still doesn't work after that.
