NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     showmount -- show remote nfs mounts on host

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     showmount [-a | -d] [-e3] [host]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The showmount utility shows status information about the NFS server on
     host.  By default it prints the names of all hosts that have NFS file
     systems mounted on the host.  See NFS: Network File System Protocol
     Specification, RFC 1094, Appendix A, and NFS: Network File System Version
     3 Protocol Specification, Appendix I, for a detailed description of the

     The following options are available:

     -a      List all mount points in the form:

     -d      List directory paths of mount points instead of hosts.

     -e      Show the host's exports list.

     -3      Use mount protocol Version 3, compatible with NFS Version 3.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     mount(8), mountd(8), mount_nfs(8)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The mount daemon running on the server only has an idea of the actual
     mounts, since the NFS server is stateless.  The showmount utility will
     only display the information as accurately as the mount daemon reports

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
