SRV(4)                                                     SRV(4)

          srv, srvtls, 9fs - start network file service

          srv [ -abcCemnNq ] [ -s seconds ] [net!]system[!service] [
          srvname [ mtpt ] ]

          srvtls [ -abcCnq ] [ -k keyspec ] [net!]system[!service] [
          srvname [ mtpt ] ]

          9fs [net!]system [mountpoint]

          Srv dials the given machine and initializes the connection
          to serve the 9P protocol.  By default, it connects to the
          `9fs' (9P) service, which for TCP is port 564.  It then cre-
          ates in /srv a file named srvname. Users can then mount (see
          bind(1)) the service, 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.  Option q suppresses complaints if the /srv
          file already exists.  The a, b, c, C, and n, N options are
          used to control the mount flags as in mount (see bind(1)).
          The e option causes srv to treat system as a shell command
          to be executed rather than an address to be dialed.  The s
          option causes srv to sleep for the specified number of sec-
          onds after establishing the connection before posting and
          mounting it.

          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.

          Srvtls is an rc(1) command that uses tlsclient (see
          tlssrv(8)) to establish an mutual authenticated and
          encrypted 9P connection to the t9fs service which by default
          listens on tcp port 17020.

     SRV(4)                                                     SRV(4)

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

               9fs kremvax
               9fs hhgttg /n/deepthought

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


          bind(1), auth(2), dial(2), srv(3), tlssrv(8), exportfs(4).

          Srv does not explicitly report failures of auth_proxy (see
          auth(2)); mount (see bind(1)) does.
