-110 is ETIMEDOUT, so this is the same error as the one plagueing you
when venus does start up. So the only real question is, why is your
client timing out on sending RPC2's to the server.

Is there a firewall that you are going through between the client and
the server, or anything that masquerades/remaps portnumbers? What kind
of network are you using, such as a heavily used ppp dialup link?
