NFS Manager

NFS ManagerNFS Manager is a graphical user interface to control all built-in NFS features of Mac OS X. It can manage a whole network of Mac OS X computers to setup a distributed NFS file system via a few simple mouse clicks.

NFS (Network File System) is the industry standard for file sharing on UNIX systems like Mac OS X. Each Mac OS X system can be setup as an NFS server to offer files to the network, or as an NFS client to access files shared by other computers. NFS can be setup to connect to servers fully automatically (“automounting”) without any password entries being necessary.

The application is designed to use the latest technologies available in Mac OS X, like Open Directory, Bonjour, or Kerberos. If your network is setup as a Kerberos realm, secure NFS with authenticated and encrypted connections can be configured.

The software is distributed electronically. You can download the product and test it before you decide to purchase a license for unrestricted usage.

OS X Mavericks Warning

Unfortunately, Apple decided to release OS X Mavericks with significant issues that may affect networking features. If you are upgrading from a previous release of Mac OS X or OS X to OS X Mavericks and you have stored NFS automount entries in the local directory node “/Local/Default”, it might not be possible to edit or delete these entries after the upgrade, because Apple's Open Directory plug-in for this node is not working correctly. Please see the Release Notes of NFS Manager for more information. In case your network configuration depends on storing automount information at that location, we strongly recommend not to use OS X Mavericks at this time.

In addition, you may experience the following network problems (not necessarily restricted to the NFS protocol standard) when using current versions of OS X Mavericks:

Apple is aware of these issues. It is currently unknown when or if they will be resolved. We don't expect that Apple fixes the bugs during the lifetime of OS X Mavericks.
