NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nfssvc - Create a remote NFS server

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       int nfssvc(
               unsigned long udp_so,
               unsigned long udp_num,
               unsigned long tcp_so,
               unsigned long tcp_num );

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  a UDP socket bound to port 2049.  Specifies the
       number of UDP NFS server threads to start (in the  low  32
       bits)  and  950410 (in the high 32 bits).  Specifies a TCP
       socket bound to port  2049  after  a  call  to  listen(2).
       Specifies the number of TCP NFS server threads to start.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  use of the nfssvc() function is not supported in customer
 applications, and the interface is subject to change
       without notice.  It is intended for use solely by nfsd(8).

       The nfssvc() function starts NFS server kernel threads and
       provides TCP connection support. If the value of the upper
       32 bits of udp_num is not  950410,  TCP  threads  are  not

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  nfssvc() function has no successful return.  In fact,
       it frees the text and data segments  associated  with  the
       calling  program  so  there  is nothing to return to. When
       interrupted by a KILL signal, the server threads are  terminated
  and  the  process  exits.  If nfssvc() encounters
       errors, -1 is returned and errno is set  to  indicate  the

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       If the nfssvc() function fails, errno may be set to one of
       the following values: Another process is executing nfssvc.
       An invalid file descriptor has been passed to the nfssvc()
       function.  More than 128 server and  netisr  threads  were
       requested.  The caller is not the superuser.
