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


       mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options]


       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.

       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.

       Under Linux 2.6.32 and later kernel versions, mount.nfs can  mount  all
       NFS  file  system  versions.   Under  earlier  Linux  kernel  versions,
       mount.nfs4 must be used for mounting NFSv4 file systems while mount.nfs
       must be used for NFSv3 and v2.


       -r     Mount file system readonly.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -V     Print version.

       -w     Mount file system read-write.

       -f     Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call.

       -n     Do  not  update  /etc/mtab.   By default, an entry is created in
              /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to skip
              making an entry.

       -s     Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.

       -h     Print help message.

              Refer to nfs(5) or mount(8) manual pages.


       For further information please refer nfs(5) and mount(8) manual pages.
