get the latest NFS patches from HP for HP-UX, install the patch set, sit through the system boot and try the connectivity test again.

Also please elaborate by answering the below.

What is the mount command you used in the client?
what entry in hosts file of NFS server for the client?
what entry in hosts file of NFS client for the server?
