Problem Mounting NFS share

I have one machine "The server" ip:, it runs ubu 8.04(LTS) and - I have a folder (/shareme) that I want to share with other linux machines on my LAN.
- The server runs NFS server and common and portmap and so do the other machines on my LAN.
- The server has the export file with the appropriate entry
/shareme (rw,no_subtree_check,sync)

When I issue the following command (can I do it differently?)
sudo mount /shared I get the following:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting

It has worked in the past with clients running ubu 9.04
now my clients run 9.10 so I wonder whether something changed in how you mount the shares.

Could anyone please help me, as I have all my "common" files on the /shareme and I need to access it from other stations on my LAN.

Your export doesn't specify any host with which to share the file.

You are exporting to hosts on the, should that have -network before it?
What is the IP address of your NFS client?
