Failing to mount from nfs-server

I installed the latest cygwin with nfs-server and the required support
packges, along with nothing else extra.  I ran nfs-server-config,
changed my exports, and started the daemons in the windows services. 
All 3 have "started" but when I try to mount shared directories from a
Fedora Core 2 client on the same network, I get

mount to NFS server '' failed: server is down.

rpcinfo -p from the localhost and from the client both return the
following info:
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111
    100000    2   udp    111
    100003    2   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    2   tcp   2049  nfs
    100005    1   udp    850
    100005    2   udp    850
    100005    1   tcp    853
    100005    2   tcp    853

nmapping these ports shows each of them as open except for 850.  There
is no firewall software on the server machine.  My exports file is as
/mnt/c/export/root	*(ro,no_root_squash,sync)
/pub				*(ro,no_root_squash,sync)

It seems to me as though this should be a working setup.  Did I miss something?
