NFS between Solaris & Linux

If you receive error messages such as "unknown version" when attempting to mount a Linux based NFS server from Solaris, you probably have an incompatibility between the NFS versions
running on both of them. Linux uses version 2, while Solaris uses version 3. In order to get the machines to communicate, you have to use the vers option on the Solaris machine as follows:

mount -o vers=2 nfsserver:/remotedir /localdir
