Linux NFS Mount

You sure know how to share files on Windows, but as you may have noticed I am biased to Linux more, so here you are how to mount an NFS (Network File System) on Linux/Unix machines.
Lets imagine that there is an NFS share made on a remote PC (, and we want to mount it on our local PC on /mnt/foo
# mkdir /mnt/foo # mount -o tcp 10.0.0.:/home/bar /mnt/foo
The "-o tcp" part is to mount using NFS over TCP which is more reliable, but may be a bit slower.
