I'm sorry. The question was not clear. I want to mount a remote DVD and have it presented to me on my local machine. I was searching whether there is any option using the command 'mount'. Is it possible with 'mount -t nfs' or 'mount -t smbfs'?

You want a remote filesystem visible to your machine? That's what
NFS is for.
But are you asking how to use the *local* mount(8) to mount a remote
DVD and have it presented to you on your local machine?
I *seriously* doubt that's possible. Unless there's some script
that automates the "ssh pmount" and tells /etc/exports about the new fs.
