Testing an NFS Server in the Network
You can verify if a computer in the network can be reached from your computer,
whether it offers NFS services, and if yes, in which form. Perform the following
- Select the menu item Configuration > Test NFS Server…. You can alternatively
click on the icon Test server in the toolbar of an open configuration window.
- Enter the DNS name or the IP address of the computer to check into the
NFS server. Press the button Test.
- A window with the results of the test will open. The upper half of the
window contains a matrix showing which NFS versions and which transport protocols
are supported by the selected computer. The lower half displays which RPC
services relevant for NFS are available on which ports.
If no results appear, OS X will be unable to contact the selected computer.
In this case you'll have to wait until OS X cancels the contact operation.
