    How can i specify some mounting options when mounting to NFS from my mac
    Right now, i hit apple+K to bring up my NFS bookmarks
    I need to troubleshoot NFS performance issues I am seeing :(
    Would like to first try mounting tcp....
    btw, what are the mac defaults?
    If someone can point me to page to RTFM on these Leopard settings, it would be wonderful!

    thanks!!! :)

    open directory utility (in applications->utilities).
    Click show advanced options at bottom,
    click mounts at the top,
    click the lock at the bottom left to unlock,
    click the plus,
    add an nfs server just as you would after apple-k
    (ex, after apple-K you would use nfs://server:/share but in directory utility you use nfs://server/share) then tell it where you want it to mount (make a folder, I put mine in /network/, and that is where this nfs share will auto-mount at bootup).
    click the arrow to show advanced mount parameters, and this is where you can put your mount options.

    alternatively, you can use the terminal but directory utility is a nice GUI way.
