There is no daemon, but you can check your rules with

iptables -L

If you get a ton of stuff there, then your firewall is running. If so, you
need to either turn it off ("rcSuSEfirewall2 stop" if it's a recent-ish suse
version) or make sure port 111 is allowed through it

Also check on the server, both firewall rules and /etc/hosts.allow
and /etc/hosts.deny to make sure the rules don't block this new client.
(Could easily happen, if the RH client is on a different subnet and that
subnet is explicitly allowed and nothing else, or if the rules explicitly let
through the RH client and nothing else)
