srv, 9fs, dk232, dkmodem - start network file service
srv [ -m ] [net!]system[!service] [ srvname [ mtpt ] ]
9fs [net!]system [mountpoint]
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.

The TCP port used for 9P is 564.
