Thank you both for replying.
About the //, I have succesfully mounted a Samba Share that way. (=> SMB / CIFS)
About changing to the 'host:dir' format, it returns mount: special device 172.16.1.x:abc does not exist
Server with NFS and Samba = 172.16.1.x
NFS Client = 172.16.2.x
CIDR is /24, so last number of IP doesn't matter, which is presented here as a "x".
On 172.16.1.x doing "sudo showmount -e", it gives:
Export list for NFSSERVER:
On 172.16.2.x doing "sudo showmount -e", it gives:
clnt_create: RPC: Program not registered
On 172.16.2.x doing "sudo showmount -e 172.16.1.x" it gives:
Export list for 172.16.1.x:
172.16.2.0 is a Network Address.

Btw, I don't need to see the NFS Share from Windows OS, Samba is a different story, and I do see my Samba Share from Windows OS.
@DeimosChaos, I'm not actually switching, this is part of an assignment for school. And don't worry, this is not an assignment where you may not ask questions to teacher or classmates.
For this assignment, the students are free to ask questions to everyone.
This is my longest post ever on this forum
