NFS Manager

4.4
08 March 2018

For easy access to the NFS features of OS X.

Overview

NFSManager is a small tool for easy access to the NFS features of OS X. As an operating system with a Unix core, OS X is able to support the Network File System (NFS) protocol according to Internet specification RFC 1094. NFS is the accepted industry standard for sharing files between Unix systems.

Although NFS is a built-in component of OS X, users cannot access this feature without special knowledge and use of the command-line. NFSManager solves this problem by providing an easy-to-use Aqua interface for the definition of NFS connections.

What's new in NFS Manager

Version 4.4:
  • Adds full support for macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
  • Adds a new mount setting enforcing the use of Extended Attributes and named forks over NFSv4 which is necessary due to a change in the default policy of macOS 10.13. (Available for High Sierra only.)
  • Adds a new client setting to override the default domain name when mapping account identities from an NFSv4 server. (Available for High Sierra only.)
  • Added an assistance mode for product registration.
  • Many small changes in the user interface.

You could edit the configuration files. But this is far easier to use. The savings in time and frustration are a good trade-off for the cost of the software. I also like the fact that it adds bonjour support to a file sharing protocol that existed decades before bonjour.

NFS Manager makes my life easier and cannot recommend it enough. I have a Mac Mini sitting inside a guttered ANS500 with 10 SATA drives connected to the Mini via a miniPCIe to PCIe adaptor and SiliconImage controllers and Port Multipliers. ZFS RAIDz is running on the drives and I use NFS Manager to share the ZFS volumes out to the rest of the computers in the house. AFP/ZFS is essentially broken when compared to NFS/ZFS performance so NFS Manager just makes my setup all that sweater... R. I.T. Manager Melbourne

There are no recent reviews, so I'll add that this application has improved a lot since the early days and is now pretty good. Not many people would have a use for it, but if you do it's a reasonable value. I use it to create a Macports build server on my local network.

I opened the app and it threw up two modal dialogs and hung, solid, when I started to answer a question. It's so bad you can't even use it.  I'm glad it has a demo period..

I tried to set up an NFS server on 10.4 but somehow the usual way (i.e. /etc/exports) didn't do it so I decided to try out NFS Manager. It did a great job, I configured NFS for my Mac and haven't touched the app since then. It does one thing (and even for free if you just want to try it) and it does it well.

Buggy and Broken. GUI Stops responding after about 3 minutes. Zillions of menus but no real explanation about what they actually do in the Help. Can't deal with an NFS share from my Linux machine. Can't connect to it, can't see it. Just ignores it. Even the Finder at least tries. Has left with me with zillions of 192.168.x.x folders in /Volumes for some reason. Whatever this app is trying to do would probably better done from the command line.

I can not get my linux drive mounted either. The Ext2fsx fixed this problem. I have not been able to figure out how this one worked.
