SRV(4)                                                     SRV(4)

     NAME
          srv, 9fs - start network file service

     SYNOPSIS
          srv [ -an ] [ -k keypattern ] address [ srvname ]

          9fs system

     DESCRIPTION
          Srv dials the given address and initializes the connection
          to serve the 9P protocol.  It then posts the resulting con-
          nection in the current name space (see intro(4)) as srvname
          (default address).

          The -a option causes srv to post a pre-authenticated connec-
          tion to the file system aname (by default, the empty string;
          see attach(9p)).

          The -n option causes srv to reject authentication attempts
          by clients, useful if the remote server is known not to
          require authentication.

          Srv authenticates over the 9P connection to establish a
          valid auth fid.  Keypattern, if specified, is used to select
          the key used for authentication.  Client attach requests are
          rewritten to use the specified aname and auth fid.

          The 9fs command executes the srv necessary to make available
          the files of system.

          9fs recognizes some special names, such as sources to make
          the file server sources.cs.bell-labs.com available as ser-
          vice sources. 9fs is an rc(1) script; examine it to see what
          local conventions apply.

     EXAMPLES
          List the root directory on sources:

               9fs sources
               9p ls sources

          Mount a remote file server bootes on Linux using the kernel
          9P mount driver, with srv handling authentication:

               srv -a sources.cs.bell-labs.com sources
               sudo mount -t 9P -o user=$USER,uid=`id -u`,gid=`id -g`,proto=unix
                          `namespace`/sources /n/sources
