MOUNT(1)                    General Commands Manual                   MOUNT(1)



NAME
       mount, unmount - change name space

SYNOPSIS
       mount servename mtpt

       unmount mtpt

DESCRIPTION
       Mount mounts a 9P server's files into the file system.  Servename is
       typically either the name of a Unix domain socket (see namespace(1)) or
       the name or IP address of a machine serving 9P over TCP port 564.

       Unmount undoes the effects of the mount command.

       9P services can be mounted on Unix systems in multiple ways.  On Linux,
       mount uses the native 9P kernel module when present.  Otherwise it
       tries to use 9pfuse(4) with the FUSE file system module.  Using the 9P
       kernel module requires root access.  FUSE can often be used by regular
       users.  On FreeBSD, mount tries to use FUSE.

       Since Unix already has a mount command, the version described in this
       manual page should be invoked as 9 mount.

EXAMPLES
       Mount acme(4) onto /mnt/acme :

              9 mount `namespace`/acme /mnt/acme

       View your plumbing rules:

              9 mount `namespace`/plumb /mnt/plumb
              cat /mnt/plumb/rules
