srv, 9fs – start network file service

srv [ −an ] [ −k keypattern ] address [ srvname ]
9fs system

Srv dials the given address and initializes the connection to serve the 9P protocol. It then posts the resulting connection in the current name space (see intro(4)) as srvname (default address).
The −a option causes srv to post a pre-authenticated connection 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 available as service sources. 9fs is an rc(1) script; examine it to see what local conventions apply.

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− sources
sudo mount −t 9p −o trans=unix,uname=$USER,dfltuid=`id −u`,dfltgid=`id −g`
`namespace`/sources /n/sources
