Look at "man exports".  You need to use the "insecure" option on the export 
entry to get it to accept any port instead of "secure" ports (<1024).

So something like:


would allow to mount /common read/write from an insecure port.

If you're not using an /etc/exports, something like

exportfs -o rw,insecure

should work.
