Right. It would appear something is going very wrong, then :)

nbd-server 2.8 enables syslog logging by default, so you may want to
check your syslog for nbd-server related messages; it could be that the
server is rejecting connections for some reason.

Please also verify that no firewall is interfering.

IIRC, Fedora comes with SELinux enabled by default. It could be that
your nbd-client isn't allowed to do stuff with the nbd device node
unless it's got the right SELinux policy; could you try rebooting the
client's kernel with SELinux in permissive mode?

Fun will now commence
