SRV(4)											   SRV(4)

       srv, 9fs, dk232, dkmodem  - start network file service

       srv [ -m ] [net!]system[!service] [ srvname [ mtpt ] ]

       9fs [net!]system [mountpoint]

       dk232 [server]

       dkmodem [telno]

       Srv  dials  the given machine and initializes the connection to serve the 9P protocol.  It
       then creates in /srv a file named srvname.  Users can then mount (see  bind(1))	the  ser-
       vice,  typically  on a name in /n, to access the files provided by the remote machine.  If
       srvname is omitted, the first argument to srv is used.  Option m directs srv to mount  the
       service on /n/system or onto mtpt if it is given.

       The  specified  service	must serve 9P.	Usually service can be omitted; when calling some
       non-Plan 9 systems, a service such as u9fs must be mentioned explicitly.

       The 9fs command does the srv and the mount necessary to make available the files of system
       on network net.	The files are mounted on mountpoint, if given; otherwise they are mounted
       on /n/system.  If system contains characters, only the last element of system is  used  in
       the /n name.

       9fs  recognizes some special names, such as dump to make the dump file system available on
       /n/dump.  9fs is an rc(1) script; examine it to see what local conventions apply.

       Dk232 configures a serial line as a Datakit device and connects to a file server  (default
       bootes) using 9fs.

       Dkmodem dials a file server at telephone number telno and configures the line as a Datakit
       device using 9fs.

       To see kremvax's and deepthought's files in /n/kremvax and /n/deepthought:

	      9fs kremvax
	      9fs hhgttg/deepthought

       The TCP port used for 9P is 564.

       /srv/* ports to file systems and servers posted by srv and 9fs
