4.9 nfs

The nfs scheme, defined in RFC 2224, is similar to ftp except that it points to a file on a remote host that is handled by an NFS automounter on the local host. Such URLs have the form

     nfs://user:password@host:port/file
— Variable: url-nfs-automounter-directory-spec
A string saying how to invoke the NFS automounter. Certain ‘%’ sequences are recognized:
%h
The hostname of the NFS server;
%n
The port number of the NFS server;
%u
The username to use to authenticate;
%p
The password to use to authenticate;
%f
The filename on the remote server;
%%
A literal ‘%’.

Each can be used any number of times.
