QNet in 6.2

Post by Neil Carter » Tue May 20, 2003 2:18 pm

Hi All,

When we used 6.1 on two machines connected on a LAN, both machines had a
/net directory, which contained the filesystem of the other machine, as a
directory named with that machine's hostname. However, since installing 6.2
on both machines, the /net directory is no longer present, even though IP
works fine (I can ping each machine from the other, and Voyager works fine
over the whole Internet on both machines).

I gather that QNet generated the /net directory. However, I don't recall
setting up Qnet on 6.1 to do this, so I assume it was automatic.

Can anyone advice how I enable this /net directory feature on 6.2?

Many thanks,

Yup, qnet used to run be default.

With 6.2, qnet isn't run by default.

From the docs:

mount -T io-net /lib/dll/npm-qnet.so

Is there a single source that lists all of the files that one merely
needs to create to turn on/off certain features?

I now know of several of them but they are not metioned in any one
place.

Cool!

Could you post your "work in progress" over the work that hasn't been
in progress for several years?

The on-line System Administrators Guide is now not only incomplete, but
also woefully obsolete now too. Perhaps you could also add a newsgroup
where people can comment on the work in progress. Even though many of
us wouldn't want to take on the responsibility of writing, say, a whole
chapter, we can all make suggestions like, "Make sure you do/don't do
this".

We're reviving the incomplete System Administration guide. The new book
should cover stuff like this.

I'll let the writer comment on that.

You can post any comments in qdn.public.sysadmin.
