# /etc/init.d/nfs restart
# /etc/init.d/portmap restart

# chkconfig nfs on
# chkconfig portmap on

Make directory for share in network.

# chmod -R 777 /data (full permission)
Open /etc/exportfs file & edit this file.

# vim /etc/exportfs

ro: The directory is shared read only; the client machine will not be able to write it. This is the default.
rw: The client machine will have read and write access to the directory.
sync: By default, all but the most recent version (version 1.11) of the exportfs command will use async behaviour.

# /etc/init.d/iptables start
open vim /etc/sysconfig/nfs & add following line for set port for nfs in iptables running mode.

# iptables -I INPUT -s -p tcp --dport 2049 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p tcp --dport 4002 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p tcp --dport 4003 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p tcp --dport 4004-j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p udp --dport 111 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p udp --dport 4002 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p udp --dport 4003 -j ACCEPT
# iptables -I INPUT -s -p udp --dport 4004 -j ACCEPT
