The NAS system should automatically publish its volumes. It has no purpose in life if its volumes are not accessible on the network. So, remote mount it using NFS commands. I'm not an NFS jockey and I don't know the command string to use but Sun has lots and lots of information available on NFS - they invented it.
If the NAS system doesn't support NFS for some reason (Microsoft CIFS-based NAS, for instance), then I recommend using open source SAMBA software to access it.
