Mount an NFS Share from OS X?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a test NFS share (export) on my local Redhat Linux 9 box. I want to try and mount it from my OS X (Panther) box. I know the share is created properly, but cant seem to figure out how to mount it from my Mac. Both computers on my local LAN.

Can I use the "Connect to Server" option in the Finder?

Do I need to mount NFS shares from the Terminal manually?

Do I have to edit my Mac's local NetInfo database in order to mount NFS shares?

Do I need to activate the NFS protocol somehow in OS X?

NFS Manager (app) seems to work, but I woul like to be able to mount NFS shares from the Finder if possible with no 3rd party apps.

I have read a lot on the web about this, and it appears that everyone has an opinion on how (and IF) it works. Even Apple's site is pretty vague.

NFS is active by default on OS X.
I think you can advertise NFS shares with LDAP but I haven't yet seen a way to just browse for NFS shares as you can with SMB/AFS.

I end up adding a script with a simple mount command to the end of the /etc/rc.common.
