I assume the "-t nfs" is a typo above?
and delete the first "/", ie. it's:
mount -t nfs server:/sharethis /sharethis

no that's /etc/hosts isn't it? (it should be) not hosts.allow

yes, mine looks like:
ALL: LOCAL 192.168.1.
sshd: ALL
proftpd: LOCAL 192.168.1.

And if still problems, guide to debugging is:
1) check the log files, any errors are usually self
   explanatory and if not, google on the error
2) if you change /etc/exports or nfs related stuff make
   sure to restart nfs (usually "/etc/init.d/nfs restart")
