AW: NFS Mount over a Specific Interface



Dear Matt,

I think the solution for You is not to look for the nfs command, You 
must create a route (see man route) to link the traffic to an IP-adress 
or subnet to a special nic.

Cetin

Apologies for the repost, but I flubbed the subject the first time...

Thank you for the response.

I should have been more specific in my original post.  The multiple NICs 
are on the NFS client.

One NIC on the NFS client will be receiving HEAVY VoIP traffic and I 
want any NFS traffic to be offloaded to a separate NIC on the client, as 
shown:
           ________           ________
         _|        |_        |        |
        |e|        |e|       |        |
  VoIP  |t|   NFS  |t|  NFS  |  NFS   |
--------|h| Client |h|-------| Server |
        |0|        |1|       |        |
         -|________|-        |________|

I'm looking for a way to tell the mount command on the NFS client which 
interface to use.  It defaults to the first active interface.  I can 
easily swap interfaces and IPs around in the box to meet my goal, but I 
was looking for a more flexible solution.

I've read the pertinent man pages and the NFS section in my network 
administration guide but they make no mention of this.  We are currently 
using NFS version 3.

Thank you,
