That might be possible.

Maybe you can extract the real "mount" probram from the  installation
files  and  download  it  (you said "wget" was working) to the target
(say, to /tmp), and then try using this?

Alternatively, you can probably put the files on a USB  mass  storage
device and mount this instead of using NFS.

Best regards,
