NFS mount is backgrounding

I am trying to mount a NAS volume in Linux and it is backgrounding.

mount /mount_point
mount.nfs: backgrounding "NAS_IP:/vol/path"
mount.nfs: mount options: "bg,intr,tcp,timeo=600,vers=3,retrans=2,addr=NAS_IP"

In /var/log/messages:

Mar 17 03:11:35 rtfmp.example.com mount[45865]: mount to NFS server 'NAS_IP' failed: timed out, retrying
Mar 17 03:11:53 rtfmp.example.com mount[45884]: mount to NFS server 'NAS_IP' failed: timed out, retrying
Mar 17 03:12:07 rtfmp.example.com mount[45443]: mount to NFS server 'NAS_IP' failed: timed out, retrying
Mar 17 03:12:21 rtfmp.example.com mount[45906]: mount to NFS server 'NAS_IP' failed: timed out, retrying

I can ping the NAS filer but the client is having trouble speaking “NFS” to the filer.

# nmap NAS_IP

Starting Nmap 5.51 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2016-03-17 03:15 CDT
Nmap scan report for HOSTNAME (NAS_IP)
Host is up (0.0013s latency).
All 1000 scanned ports on NAS_IP (NAS_IP) are filtered

Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 21.17 seconds

All ports are blocked! If I run nmap against a different NAS from which I can mount volumes

# nmap  NAS_IP

Nmap scan report for HOSTNAME (NAS_IP)
Host is up (0.0011s latency).
