IMPORT(4)                  Kernel Interfaces Manual                  IMPORT(4)



NAME
       import - import a name space from a remote system

SYNOPSIS
       import [ option ...  ] system file [ mountpoint ]

DESCRIPTION
       Import  allows an arbitrary file on a remote system to be imported into
       the local name space.  Usually file is a  directory,  so  the  complete
       file tree under the directory is made available.

       A  process is started on the remote machine, with authority of the user
       of import, to perform work for the local machine using the  exportfs(4)
       service.   If  mountpoint is omitted import uses the name of the remote
       file as the local mount point.

       If file is a directory, import allows options exactly as in  mount  and
       bind(1) to control the construction of union directories.

EXAMPLE
       To allow a Datakit-only machine to access an Ethernet using TCP:

              import -a kremvax /net
              con tcp!ucbvax

       or

              import -a kremvax /net
              echo 'add tcp' > /net/cs
              con ucbvax

SOURCE
       /sys/src/cmd/import.c
