|MOUNTD(8)||System Manager's Manual||MOUNTD(8)|
mountdis the server for NFS mount requests from other client machines.
mountdlistens for service requests at the port indicated in the NFS server specification; see Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC 1094, Appendix A and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification, RFC 1813, Appendix I. The options are as follows:
mountdwill not detach from the controlling terminal and will print debugging messages to stderr.
mountdis started, it loads the export host addresses and options into the kernel using the mount(2) system call. After changing the exports file, a hangup signal should be sent to the
mountddaemon 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
mountdlogged any parsing errors in the exports file.
mountdutility first appeared in 4.4BSD. The
-nflag historically allowed clients to use non-reserved ports when communicating with
mountd. In OpenBSD, a reserved port is always used.
