NFS mount request server
The mountd command is an RPC server that answers file
system mount requests. It reads the file /etc/dfs/sharetab,
to determine which filesystems are available for mounting by which
machines. It also provides information as to what filesystems are mounted
by which clients. This information can be printed using the
With -n, mountd does not check that the clients are
root users. Though this option makes things slightly less
secure, it does allow older versions (pre-3.0) of client NFS to work.
The mountd daemon is automatically invoked in run level 3.
Only a privileged user can execute this command.
