'export' the filesystem on one machine, and 'mount' it on the other.

since you are using Solaris the command should be 'share' instead of 'export', if i am not mistaken.

To share /whatever on the host nfsserver, execute;
share -F nfs -o rw /whatever

If you want to share read only change rw to ro

On the client, execute;
mount nfsserver:/whatever mount_point

substituting mount_point for a directory where you wish to mount /whatever
