NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nfsportmon - Turns the port monitor on or off

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/nfsportmon option

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Turns the port monitor on.  Turns the port monitor off.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The nfsportmon command turns the port monitor on or off at
       the kernel level. By default, the port monitor  is  turned

       When  the  port monitor is on, NFS server port checking is
       activated.  This checking  increases  system  security  by
       ensuring  that  file access requests were generated by the
       client kernel rather than by a forged application program,
       for example.

       Turning  the  port  monitor on is only in effect until the
       system is rebooted.  To turn the port monitor on each time
       the  system is rebooted, edit the /etc/inet.local file and
       add an nfsportmon entry to it.

       Only the superuser or root can run nfsportmon.
