There is no problem. The v4 refers to the version of the protocol not
the version of the client or server.

AFAIK there is both nfs v3 and v4 client, but no nfs v4 server in the
base system. The nfs v4 server is in development and I think code can be
downloaded if you want to experiment.

But what you have been using so far is most likely v3 for both server
and client.
