NFS 3 client filesystem (QNX Neutrino)

Note: You must be root to start this manager.


fs-nfs3 [-b num] [-B size] [-D] [-e] [-h] 
        [-i nodes] [-r] [-S] [-t] [-u] [-v[v]...] 
        [-Z n] server:export mountpoint
        [[-erStu] [-Z n] server:export mountpoint ...]


The name of the NFS server.
The directory to be exported from the server.
The name under which the exported directory is to be mounted.

The following options apply to all mountpoints:

-b num
Use num buffers (default: 200).
-B size
Set the buffer size to size bytes. The default is set by the first server, and is usually 8K.
Run in the foreground.
Display usage information.
-i nodes
Set the number of inodes to nodes.
Verbose output; add more v characters for more verbosity. In order to capture the log messages, you need to have syslogd running.

The following options apply only to the next mountpoint specified on the command line:

Set the NO EXEC flag for the mounted filesystem.
Set the READ ONLY flag for the mounted filesystem.
Don't cache symlinks.
Use TCP instead of UDP. If this fails, fs-nfs3 uses UDP.
Use UDP (which is the default). If this fails, fs-nfs3 fails.
-Z n
The value of n indicates how to attach to the path:

The default is none of these.


The fs-nfs3 filesystem manager is an NFS 3 client operating over TCP/IP. To use it, you must have an NFS server.

This filesystem manager requires a TCP/IP transport layer, such as the one provided by io-net with the npm-tcpip.so. It also needs socket.so and libc.so.

By default, this utility does not set any upper limit for number of inodes.

You can also create mountpoints with the mount command by specifying nfs for the type and -o ver3 as an option. You must start fs-nfs3 before creating mountpoints in this manner. If you start fs-nfs3 without any arguments, it runs in the background so you can use mount.


Mount the qnx_bin export as /bin from an NFS server named server_node:

fs-nfs3 server_node:/qnx_bin /bin &

Mount /nfs1 using TCP, and /nfs3 using UDP:

fs-nfs3 -t host1:/ /nfs1 host2:/ /nfs3

Mount both using TCP:

fs-nfs3 -t host1:/ /nfs1 -t host2:/ /nfs3

Mount an NFS filesystem (fs-nfs3 must be running first):

mount -t nfs -o ver3 server_node:/qnx_bin /bin


Networking I/O manager.
Full TCP/IP stack.
Tiny TCP/IP stack.


If possible, you should use fs-nfs3 instead of fs-nfs2.
