Wink nfs-mounting via ssh. Possible ?

nfs-mounting via ssh. Possible ?

I have found these pages ab. tunneling:

My idea is that :
From my localmachine, I would like to ssh a linux box (server) that is also nfs share server. The server is behind a nat with the 22 open ports.
Once the ssh connection active to the linux box server, I would like to mount the nfs sharing of the server to the localmachine, and this via SSH.

Is it possible ?

Thank you

Looks like it should work. Never tried NFS but have redirected ports like httpd 80, mailserver 25, and things I use like gkrellm to display remote gkrellm locally about the system. The usage of ssh is unlimited. This is a good site on ssh.
