NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     showmount - show remote NFS mounts on host

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     showmount [-ade3] [host]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     showmount 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
     Specification, Appendix I, for a detailed description of the

     -a      List all mount points in the form: host:dirpath.

     -d       List  directory  paths  of  mount points instead of

     -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)

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

OpenBSD     3.6                          March      29,      1995
