Mounting NFS

Hi,

I am having some issues mounting NFS files.
for some reason the
Code:
mount -F nfs

is not being recognized..

Code:
bash-3.2# mount -F nfs -o rw 192.168.245.129:/mnt/nfs1/ /mnt
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-20135: FSType nfs not recognized
UX:vxfs mount: INFO: V-3-20147: Usage:
mount [-F vxfs] [generic_options] [-o suboptions] {special | mount_point}
        suboptions are:

I was able to successfully mount the NFS to a Linux host, but it's not working the same for the Solaris box.
OS version is 5.10 x86

Appreciate if anyone has had similar issues..
Thanks.

What version of NFS do you have on:
1. the remote system - OS would help too.
2. solaris system should be using NFS version 4.
# 3  
I am sharing it from FreeNAS-9.1.1-RELEASE-x64

What does which mount say?
