    Have you exported the share form the NFS-server to the client? (look in /etc/exports on your server and remember to run exportfs -a afterwards)

    Do you put a space between the colon and the first /testx. You might try removing the space unless that is just a typo here.
    The command you post is trying to mount a testx directory in the root of the filesystem on "" to a mount point (directory) testx in the root of the filesystem on the machine you are running the command from. Is that what you are trying to do?

    the IP address was not properly configured in the /etc/exports, it's working now.

    Thanks for all the replies,
