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.

This has two consequences:

Please see the Release Notes of NFS Manager for more information.

OS X Mavericks is affected by additional flaws in the Finder and the DNS cache which limit operation and performance when using file service client features. Users who like to use OS X in professional network environments should avoid Mavericks and update to Yosemite.
