NAME

       plpnfsd - Daemon to mount a Psion like an NFS file-system

SYNOPSIS

       plpnfsd  [-V]  [-v] [-D] [-h] [-p [host:]port] [-d mount-dir] [-u user]
       [long-options]

DESCRIPTION

       plpnfsd is a daemon, which provides NFS-like access to your Psion.   It
       automatically  makes  the  Psion’s file-systems available below an NFS-
       mounted directory (default /var/lib/plptools/mnt).  By default, plpnfsd
       is  installed  suid-root,  so any normal user can start it and gets the
       mounted directory owned by himself.  As this program is usually used on
       single-user  machines,  this  does  not  hurt  security. Like the other
       front-ends, this program auto-reconnects after a link-failure,  so  you
       can keep the psion mounted all the time, even when it is not connected.
       Due to Rudolf Koenig’s clever error-handling, you don’t need  to  worry
       about  blocked  io-processes  if the psion isn’t available.  You simply
       will get an "device not configured" error, when accessing a file  on  a
       previously connected psion which has been disconnected. After that, the
       mount-point will appear with the drives missing. As soon as  the  psion
       is  connected  again, the subdirectories will reappear (possibly with a
       few seconds delay).

OPTIONS

       -V, --version
              Display the version and exit

       -h, --help
              Display a short help text and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Produce verbose logging output. Can be specified more than  once
              to increase the debug level (up to 3 times)

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify  the  host  and  port to connect to (e.g. the port where
              ncpd is listening on) - by default the host is 127.0.0.1 and the
              port  is looked up in /etc/services. If it is not found there, a
              fall-back builtin of 7501.

       -d, --mountpoint=mount-dir
              Specify the directory to mount the psion file  system  on.  This
              defaults to /var/lib/plptools/mnt

       -u, --user=user
              Specify  the user who will own the psion files. This defaults to
              the user who is running plpnfsd. If the user running plpnfsd  is
              root , s/he may also specify a different user.

FILES

       Below   the  special  directory  /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc  there  are
       several special files which can be used to control plpnfsd and/or  view
       some information of the connected Psion.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/exit
              can  be used to shutdown plpnfsd gracefully. To shutdown plpnfsd
              write the string "stop" into that file.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/owner
              shows the Psion’s owner information.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/unixowner
              The superuser (root) can set the owner of the mounted directory-
              tree  during  runtime by writing the desired user-name into this
              file.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/debuglevel
              Reading/writing from/to this file shows  resp.  sets  the  debug
              level.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/acache
              Reading/writing  from/to  this file shows resp. sets the timeout
              value for the attribute cache in seconds.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/dcache
              Reading/writing from/to this file shows resp. sets  the  timeout
              value for the data cache in seconds.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/<number>/cmd
              Shows the name of the corresponding process on the Psion.

       /var/lib/plptools/mnt/proc/<number>/args
              Shows the arguments of the corresponding process on the Psion.
