Stupid suggestion --

a) Go to the Shorewall home page.
b) At the top, you will see a "Search" form.
c) Enter NFS in the form and click "Search"

The second hit is quite relevant.

If the set of rules that you find there don't work (and of course you should 
be looking at the Shorewall log to see what traffic is still getting 
blocked), then I suggest opening ALL UDP traffic from the client systems to 
the server in addition to TCP port 111.
