(client-connect inport outport [user] [mountpoint])procedure

The inport and outport arguments are the ports you use to communicate to the server. The user argument is the name of the user that creates the files. It defaults to the empty string. There is no support for authentication, so the user name is simply used for newly created files on servers that support usernames (wmii doesn't, for example). The mountpoint also defaults to the empty string, which selects the "default mount point" on the server. If the server has multiple mountpoints it exports, you can select with this argument.

The procedure returns a connection object you must keep and use in all subsequent 9p procedure calls.

You can use the following procedures to obtain some more information on the connection:
