How to Browse Using an NFS URL

Browsers that are capable of supporting the WebNFS service should provide access to an NFS URL that resembles the following:


Name of the file server


Port number to use (2049, default value)


Path to file, which can be relative to the public file handle or to the root file system

Note –

In most browsers, the URL service type (for example, nfs or http) is remembered from one transaction to the next. The exception occurs when a URL that includes a different service type is loaded. After you use an NFS URL, a reference to an HTTP URL might be loaded. If such a reference is loaded, subsequent pages are loaded by using the HTTP protocol instead of the NFS protocol.
