COLLAB(1)                                               COLLAB(1)

     NAME
          collab: connect - connect to collaborative files and
          services

     SYNOPSIS
          collab/connect [ -C alg ] [ -k keyfile ] [ -v ] [ netaddress
          [ localdir ] ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Connect dials network address netaddr (default:
          net!$collab!9999), which should be served by an instance of
          collabsrv(8), and mounts the resulting connection on
          /n/remote; it then binds /n/remote/collab on localdir
          (default: /n/ftree/collab).

          The resulting hierarchy under /n/remote is determined by the
          site configuration, but usually includes the directory
          /n/remote/services, which gives access to the server side of
          collaborative activities, as described in collabsrv(8), and
          the directory /n/remote/collab, which contains the file
          hierarchy that contains all collaborative resources offered
          to a client device.

          If an instance of wm-ftree(1) is running in the same name
          space, then after mounting the connection and adjusting the
          name space, connect tells it that the name space has
          changed, so any displayed view of it can be updated.

          Connect accepts the following options:

          -C alg
               Specify the algorithm, alg, to be used following
               authentication for digesting or encryption. See ssl(3)
               for the supported algorithms.  The default is none:
               ssl(3) is not used after authentication.

          -k kfile
               Specify the keyfile to be used when authenticating.
               The default is /usr/user/keyring/netaddr, if that
               exists, and otherwise /usr/user/keyring/default.  See
               keyring-auth(2) for more details.

          -v   Causes connect to chat about its actions on standard
               output.
