NFS mount -

I have a problem connecting this Fedora-20 computer with an NFS server. 
I have just set up the server on Scientific Linux 7.

The mount command:

[root at box10 bobg]# mount  /mnt/box48/

Does nothing until it eventually times out. I can ssh into the server 
and see all the files. I tried to configure it to be nearly the same as 
another NFS server that has been working well.

[bobg at box48 ~]$ cat /etc/exports
#    /etc/exports




[bobg at box48 ~]$ cat /etc/fstab

# /etc/fstab

# bind mounts

/home/data    nfs4exports/data    none    rw,bind    0 0

/home/home    nfs4exports/home    none    rw,bind    0 0

I have been referring to the Fedora Project NFS guide but apparently I 
am missing something. I tried systemctl stop iptables on the server, no 
change. I routinely mount the other NFS so I assume the problem is not 
in "Firewalld."

One difference is that the server in question has two identical drives 
configured Raid1. Apparently XFS is preferred or required, I'm nor sure 
but Anaconda kept changing ext4 to xfs so I assumed they know better 
than I do?

Any thought or suggestions appreciated,
