We have no other access.
I'm going to assume that the server is configured to only allow this particular client to connect. Otherwise you could use a client where you did have root access. (How the server identifies this client is something worth questioning too, in a pinch.)
If you must use NFS and don't have root access on the client, then my first thought is to find a userspace NFS client or NFS browser. The only one I've found so far is JFtp, which is a Java GUI client. However, if you're a programmer and so inclined, another option is to roll your own; there is a library called
I haven't tried either of them, but hopefully this is a start. There may be more out there that I haven't noticed. Finally, beware that the NFS server may require you to connect as root (from a privileged port), in which case you're out of luck.
...Alternately, I just noticed your '//somebox/somefolder/' nomenclature, which is highly unusual for NFS, but standard for SMB (Samba / Windows filesharing), at least on Linux machines. If that's the case, then the tool you want is
