NAME

mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System  

SYNOPSIS

mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnh ] [-t version] [-o options]  

DESCRIPTION

mount.nfs is a part of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS client functionality.

mount.nfs is meant to be used by the mount(8) command for mounting NFS shares. This subcommand, however, can also be used as a standalone command with limited functionality.

mount.nfs4 is used for mounting NFSv4 file system, while mount.nfs is used to mount NFS file systems versions 3 or 2. remotetarget is a server share usually in the form of servername:/path/to/share. dir is the directory on which the file system is to be mounted.
