NFS and named pipes

NFS and named pipes

Post by Uwe Bonne » Thu, 13 Feb 1997 04:00:00


what should Linux and NFS should do with named pipes. I think the present
behaviour is inconsistant.
elektron:~> mkfifo speedtest
elektron:~> dd if=/dev/zero of=speedtest
hertz:~> grep home /proc/mounts
elektron:/home /home nfs rw,rsize=16384,wsize=4096,timeo=1,soft,intr,addr=elektron 0 0
hertz:~> time dd if=speedtest of=/dev/null bs=8192 count=1k
dd: speedtest: Is a directory

hertz:~> ls -l speedtest

The client sees the named pipe, but can't access it. Do I do something

1. Any compatibility between Unix Named Pipes and NT Named Pipes??

Is there any compatibility (or libraries to give same functionality)
between unix (specifically OpenStep but general solutions OK) and WinNT
with NAMED PIPEs?  I have a need to have the Named Pipe functionality for
talking between Named Pipes on both platforms.
