It is a red hat server, not sure which one.
It is nfs.
What other info?

I've been using mount and mount host but the target server does not
recognize mount host. I thought maybe mountd was not running on the host.

as long as nfs and portmapper are both running it's just a case of running "mount server:/var/some/where /mnt/server" etc...
