Build NFS Server to share any directories in LAN.

# add *note
/home 192.168.0.0/24(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

# *note
/home   => shared directory
192.168.0.0/24  => range of networks NFS permits accesses
rw    => possible to read and write
sync    => synchronize
no_root_squash  => enable root privilege
