Mount Azure NetApp Volume to on-premise Server ?

We have ExpressRoute connection from Azure to on-prem.

Can we mount the Azure NetApp Volume (having NFS) to an on-prem Linux Server. What on-prem Linux versions are supported to mount? If Yes, What are the steps to mount ?

I believe to mount to on-prem Windows, we should do via NFS Client.

I figured out way to mount on my windows machine.
Enable NFS Client

Add the following registry entries, by running the below 2 powershell commands

New-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ClientForNFS\CurrentVersion\Default -Name AnonymousUid -PropertyType DWord -Value 0

New-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ClientForNFS\CurrentVersion\Default -Name AnonymousGid -PropertyType DWord -Value 0

Then in command prompt , we can type

mount HOST-IP:/VOLUMENAME DRIVE:
