How to nfs mount with Redhat Linux

*** I also posted this in the Unix general forum, but would like to get the Linux point of view. ***

Hello all -

I've searched this forum, but was unable to find out the info I need.

I'm trying to mount (nfs mount) a directory on another box from my Linux machine.

The mount point resides on a Tru64 digital unix machine. The machine trying to do the mount is a Linux machine (redhat 8.0).

I'm having a hard time getting the point mounted.

More specifically - I get the error:

mount RPC timed out

This is how I think it's supposed to be done:

Tru64 machine:
In /etc/exports you must make an entry to allow exporting of file:

/usr/some_file IP ADDRESS

Linux machine:
In /etc/fstab you must make an entry:

IP ADDRESS:/usr/some_file /my_dir nfs

Could someone shed some light on the problem?

I believe that all the necessary daemons are started.

Thanks!
