          kfscmd, ksync - kfs administration

          disk/kfscmd [-n name] cmd ...


          Kfs is a local user-level file server for a Plan 9 terminal
          with a disk.  Kfscmd transmits commands to the kfs server
          (see kfs(4)). The -n option changes the name of the kfs ser-
          vice to (by default, full name is just kfs).

          Ksync executes the sync command for all active kfs servers.

          The known commands are described below.  Note that some com-
          mands are multiple words and should be quoted to appear as a
          single argument to rc(1).

          allow     Turn permission checking off (to simplify adminis-

          disallow  Turn permission checking on.

          halt      Write all changed blocks and stop the file system.

          start     The opposite of halt; restart the file system.

          rename file name
                    Change the name of file to name.

          newuser user
                    Add user to /adm/users and make the standard
                    directories needed for booting.

          remove file
                    Remove file and place its blocks on the free list.

          clri file Remove file but do not place the blocks on the
                    free list.  This command can be used to remove
                    files that have duplicated blocks.  The non-
                    duplicate blocks can be retrieved by checking the
                    file system with option f (see below).

          create file owner group mode [adl]
                    Create the file.  Owner and group are users in
                    /adm/users and mode is an octal number.  If

          cfs filsys
                    Change the `console' to the named file system
                    (default is the main system).

                    P    print the names of all files as they are

                    w    write all of the blocks that are touched.

          listen [address]
                    Start a listener to serve the network at address,
                    default il!*!17008.  This feature is intended to
                    facilitate small networks of a couple machines in
                    the situation when convenience is more important
                    than performance.  This command is only useful on
                    a CPU server, because #c/key needs to be readable.
                    The production file server (see fs(4)) is strongly
                    encouraged for anything more than casual use.

                    When listening to the network, the default behav-
                    ior is that the user none may only attach over
                    connections that have already authenticated as
                    someone else.  This prevents just anyone from
                    being able to dial your server and attach as none.
                    The noneattach command toggles whether none can
                    attach without such a chaperone.
