Question mount a remote drive

How do I mount a directory that is on another server that has already shared it?

mount 555.555.444.44:/cdrom0 does not work.

You did get information on what type of OS you are running. What system is the server adn hwat system is the client.

If Linux "Red Hat"
You may want to look at your ipchains.
Look at how the nfs is being shared ie to all or just a few users.

If Solaris
Check you server host.allow and hosts.deny files.
Also look at how it is being shared.
Good Luck

Looks like you need to declare your local mounting point. So, it should look like this
"mount -f nfs 555.555.444.44:/cdrom0 /mnt".
