Backup script in ksh

I need a script in ksh that
-automatically connect to computers in a network and identify directories in remote computers
-then mount directories on to the local host where the script is runned
-then backup directories in the local host and the remote systems one by one using tar command (to archive) on to local host.

Only NFS-exported file systems can be mounted.
If you have Solaris/Linux/HP-UX automounter running and /net -hosts in /etc/auto.master (or /etc/auto_master), you should be able to discover and backup the exported NFS, like this example
date=`date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M`
cd /net || exit
tar cf /path/to/archive/$date.tar remotehost1 remotehost2

Or a loop
date=`date +%Y-%m-%d-%H-%M`
cd /net || exit
for h in remotehost1 remotehost2
  tar cf /path/to/archive/$h.$date.tar $h
