    The NFS Server is designed to make mount points available in a network. My Experience with this is that you have a server with a running nfsd and setup directories which you want to make available for mounting with a client. It is possible to limit certain shares to certain Network or even to one IP-Address. This is all done with the nfs config file /etc/exports. The syntax is explained in its manpage. After starting nfsd on the server you mount the directory on the client. You may also want to add a line in /etc/fstab for permanent mouting the nfs share. You can also use YaST for setting up NFS server and client. That's the basics. You can find a how to here.

    If your are transferring a single file now and then (or a bit more), NFS is an overkill. The easiest
    and safest thing is transferring over ssh, called "fish:" on some file browsers. It needs no
    configuration, just a running sshd server on the "other" side (trivial in openSUSE).

    Yes, that's more easy for single file transfer and if you like it non-graphical use scp, it just needs
    a running sshd server, too. So if you can access the server via ssh, you can also transfer files with
    scp. Give it a try and also take a look into its man page for further information.

    I think, u can try tftp...start a tftp server in your local computer, and using the tftp client from the arm board u can get a file..
