Accessing an NFS URL by Using a Browser
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
In most browsers, the URL service type (for example, nfs
) is remembered from one transaction to the next. The exception occurs when a URL that includes a different service type is loaded. For example, if a reference to an HTTP URL is loaded after you use an NFS URL, subsequent pages are loaded by using the HTTP protocol instead of the NFS protocol.
