man nfsd

You configure your exports in /etc/exports and mount those volumes through

NFSv4 has much better security, but I've never configured it myself yet.
NFSv3 and below use implicit trust between the user and group IDs used on
each system, making it a snap to hack into any export that is not restricted
by hostname or IP address.
