mountd

mountd

mountd Services remote NFS mount requests.
/sbin/mountd [-dn] [<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.
-d Enables debugging mode. mountd does not detach from the controlling terminal and prints debugging messages to standard error.
-n Does not require that clients make mount requests from reserved ports. Normally only mount requests from reserved ports are accepted. This option should be specified only if there are clients, such as PCs, that need it. The use of -n is strongly discouraged because it opens a wide variety of security problems.
<exportsfile> Specifies an alternative location for the exports file.
