mytestsrv appears to be exporting its whole filesystem,
which is a bit unusual.  normally, a home server would just 
export /home - that is, an /etc/exports line like:

note that you _could_ also make the fstab entry (on the client side)

mytestsrv:/home /home ...

(without changing the exports entry).

out of curiosity, how are you finding nfs4?  I'd be most interested if you've
performed any performance comparisons...
