If you look at network addresses and subnet masks in binary it is easy
to see how routing decisions are made.  But you don't need to do that,
you can just use a subnet chart or stick to /24 ranges where the first
3 octets are different for different subnets and you netmask is
255.255.255.0.    But first you need to decide what you want to do -
will both the server and clients have separate NICs for NFS?  That
makes it easy - use a different range, hook them to a different switch
and you are done.  Bonus, you can restrict the sharing to that set of
addresses for security - and maybe use jumbo frames.
