How can I mount a shared directory from a server to an Android app?
I am developing an Android NFS Client using the ‘nfs-client-java’ library. I am able to access and create files on the server, but I cannot mount the whole shared directory from the server.
On a Linux NFS Client, I can mount a shared directory from the server using the following command:
mount -t nfs -o nolock,rw,vers=3 192.168.1.10:/media/user/ /mnt/media_rw/remote
/mnt/media_rw/remote is where the shared directory will be mounted.
Is there a way to achieve the same result using an Android app?
Yes, you can achieve the same result using the
nfs-client-java library in your Android app. Here’s an example code snippet that you can modify to fit your specific use case:
// Create a new NFS mount object
NfsMount nfsMount = new NfsMount();
// Set the NFS server IP address
// Set the shared directory path on the server
Share share = new Share();
// Set the local directory path where the shared directory will be mounted
// Set the NFS mount options
// Mount the shared directory
NfsFileSystem nfsFileSystem = nfsMount.mount();
// Use the NFS client to access and create files on the server
// Unmount the shared directory when you're done
Note: You may need to add the
libaums libraries to your project’s dependencies.
