9IMPORT(4)		   Kernel Interfaces Manual		    9IMPORT(4)

NAME
       9import - import	a name space from a remote system

SYNOPSIS
       9import [ options ] system file [ mountpoint ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  9import tool allows	an arbitrary file on a remote system, with the
       capability of running the Plan 9	exportfs(4) service,  to  be  imported
       into  the  local	 name space.  Usually file is a	directory, so the com-
       plete file tree under the directory is made available.

       A process is started on the remote machine, with	authority of the  user
       of 9import, to perform work for the local machine using the exportfs(4)
       service.	 The default port used is TCP 17007.  If mountpoint  is	 omit-
       ted,  then  9import uses	the name of the	remote file as the local mount
       point.

       The options are:

       -A     Skip the authentication protocol.	 This is useful	for connecting
	      to foreign systems like Inferno.

       -k keypattern
	      Use  keypattern  to  select  a key to authenticate to the	remote
	      side (see	auth(2)).

       -p     Push the aan(8) filter onto the connection  to  protect  against
	      temporary	network	outages.

       -s name
	      Post the connection's mountable file descriptor as /srv/name.
