Problem mounting NFS exported from SuSE 7.1

When I try to mount an NFS filesystem that has been expoted from a
SuSE 7.1 box on another box (running AIX 4.3.3 - but I don't think
this is relevant), the mount fails. The SuSE /var/log/messages
shows that NFS has authorised the request, but then reports that the
kernel nfsd has rejected it as it comes from an "insecure port". I
don't know why the kernel nfsd is getting a look in as I've
specified USE_KERNEL_NFSD="no" in /etc/rc.config (and remembered to
run SuSEconfig).

Filesystems exported from the AIX box mount with no problems on the
SuSE box. SuSE 7.1 has recentlly replaced RedHat 6.1 on this
particular box and NFS was working fine under RedHat.

These are the log entries:

May 3 10:50:48 ns2 rpc.mountd: authenticated mount request from
159.15.129.3:802 for /usr/shr (/usr/shr)
May 3 10:50:48 ns2 kernel:
nfsd: request from insecure port (9f0f8103:53432)!
---snip---

Anyone got any advice on how to get this working, please?
