NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     nfsd - remote NFS server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     nfsd [-rtu] [-n num_servers]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     nfsd runs on a server machine to service NFS  requests  from
client machines.
   At least one nfsd must be running for a machine to
operate as a

     Unless otherwise specified, four servers for  UDP  transport
are started.

     The options are as follows:

     -n num_servers
             Specifies how many servers to create (max 20).

     -r       Register  the  NFS  service with portmap(8) without
creating any
             servers.  This option can be used along with the  -u
or -t options
             to re-register NFS if the portmap server is restarted.

     -t      Serve TCP NFS clients.

     -u      Serve UDP NFS clients.

     For example, ``nfsd -u -t -n 6'' serves UDP and  TCP  transports using six

     A  server  should  run  enough daemons to handle the maximum
level of concurrency
 from its clients, typically four to six.

     nfsd listens for service requests at the port  indicated  in
the NFS server
     specification;    see    Network    File   System   Protocol
Specification, RFC 1094
     and  NFS:   Network   File   System   Version   3   Protocol

     The  nfsd  utility  exits 0 on success or >0 if an error occurred.
