Can't connect to NFS Share

Hello, I'm new to the list.
I've had a FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE-p13 server running for a long time,  
but now I've decided to install 4.11 on a new machine.

The problem I'm having is that I have nfs shares configured,  
showmount -e shows me the correct information, all the nfs services  
are running, and I have network connectivity between my PowerMac and  
the new FreeBSD machine, but I can't mount or connect to the shares.

When I open a root terminal on my Mac and issue "mount_nfs moe:/usr/ 
local/www /Volumes/Storage/TMP", I get "Permission Denied".
On the FreeBSD machine, I see "NFS request from unprivileged port  

I've searched the list archives for "NFS request from unprivileged  
port" with no joy, and don't find anything else interesting on Google.

Could someone please point me in the right direction to resolve this?
