Under GNU/Linux and *BSD operating systems it is recommended to use 9pfs to mount 9p services.
doas 9pfs -o allow_other 9front /mnt
When using drawterm it is possible to serve a 9P connection directly to the host system
/net and starting exportfs(1) like shown in the script below
#!/bin/rc rfork n bind /mnt/term/net /net aux/listen1 -t tcp!*!12345 /bin/exportfs -r / & os mkdir -p /tmp/drawterm os 9pfs localhost -p 12345 /tmp/drawterm
It requires 9pfs to be installed. A side bonus of doing it this way is, that it uses the drawterm’s aan connection to keep the 9p connection up.
It is possible to use moody’s tlsclient UNIX port for authenticated tls-encrypted 9p connections using the following script:
#!/bin/sh export CPU=<cpu server> export AUTH=<auth server> export USER=<username> export PASS=<password> socat unix-listen:/tmp/9psock exec:"9cpu -r /" & exec 9pfs -U /tmp/9psock /mnt
The Linux kernel contains a 9p driver that can be made to mostly work with 9front systems. Two things to keep in mind however:
sudo mount -t 9p -o version=9p2000,port=564,trans=tcp your.9p.server /mnt/9p
