NFS mounting with username/password option
 
I'd like to manually mount my nfs share mount -t nfs ipaddress:/nfsshare /mnt/nfsfolder
but would like to include a userid and password option via command (not via fstab), since the nfs share has different credentials than the server where I'm mounting to. What's the proper switch to include in this line?
Cheers!

NFS does not need user authentication.
Can you paste us the error you are getting when trying to mount ? this way we will know what is the underlying issue. NFS mounts are mostly controlled at the ip address level and if the share is not exported for your IP then you might not be able to mount it.
