Do you have to share also from server or only you have to mount the shared file to local system.


If you know the IP address of server which is going to work as file server and the directory which is shared, all you need to do is on the local system execute mount with following option


#mount -F nfs ip:/<directory> <localmountpoint>

Or even simpler if you didn't disabled the automounter, just use:
/net/server-ip-or-hostname/directory
