You can choose to include the –public option with an NFS URL. Without the –public option, the MOUNT protocol is used if the public file handle is not supported by the server. The –public option forces the use of the public file handle, and the mount fails if the public file handle is not supported.

# mount -F nfs nfs://host[:port]/pathname mount-point
# mount -F nfs nfs://bee:3000/export/share/local /mnt
In this example, the /export/share/local file system is being mounted from the server bee by using NFS port number 3000. The port number is not required, and by default the standard NFS port number of 2049 is used.
