NFSD(8)                 NetBSD System Manager's Manual                 NFSD(8)


NAME
nfsd -- remote NFS server
SYNOPSIS
nfsd [-6rut] [-n num_threads]
DESCRIPTION
nfsd runs on a server machine to service NFS requests from client machines. At least one nfsd must be running for a machine to operate as a server. Unless otherwise specified, four servers for UDP transport are started. The following options are available: -r Register the NFS service with rpcbind(8) without creating any servers. This option can be used along with the -u or -t options to re-register NFS if the portmap server is restarted. -n Specifies how many server threads to create. The default is 4. A server should run enough threads to handle the maximum level of concurrency from its clients. -6 Listen to IPv6 requests as well as IPv4 requests. If IPv6 support is not available, nfsd will silently continue and just use IPv4. -t Serve TCP NFS clients. -u Serve UDP NFS clients. For example, ``nfsd -t -u -n 6'' serves UDP and TCP transports using six threads. nfsd listens for service requests at the port indicated in the NFS server specification; see Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC 1094 and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification. The nfsd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
