MOUNTD(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual                 MOUNTD(8)


     mountd - service remote NFS mount requests


     mountd [-dn] [-p port] [exportsfile]


     mountd is the server for NFS mount requests from other client machines.
     mountd listens for service requests at the port indicated in the NFS
     server specification; see Network Filesystem Protocol Specification, RFC
     1094, Appendix A and NFS: Network Filesystem Version 3 Protocol
     Specification, Appendix I.

     The options are as follows:

     -d      Enable debugging mode. mountd will not detach from the control-
             ling terminal and will print debugging messages to stderr.

     -n      Do not require that clients make mount requests from reserved
             ports. (Normally, only mount requests from reserved ports are ac-
             cepted.) This option should only be specified if there are
             clients, such as PCs, that need it. The use of -n is STRONGLY
             discouraged, as it opens up a wide range of security problems.

     -p      Bind to the specified port on both UDP and TCP. By default,
             mountd binds to a random port.

             The exportsfile argument specifies an alternate location for the
             exports file.

     When mountd is started, it loads the export host addresses and options
     into the kernel using the mount(2) system call. After changing the ex-
     ports file, a hangup signal should be sent to the mountd daemon to get it
     to reload the export information. After sending the SIGHUP (kill -HUP
     `cat /var/run/mountd.pid`), check the syslog output to see if mountd
     logged any parsing errors in the exports file.


     /etc/exports         list of exported filesystems
     /var/run/mountd.pid  PID of the currently running mountd


     nfsstat(1), exports(5), nfsd(8), portmap(8), showmount(8)


     The mountd utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
