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

     nfsd - remote NFS server

     nfsd [-rut] [-n num_servers]

     Nfsd runs on a server machine to service NFS requests from client ma-
     chines.  At least one nfsd must be running for a machine to operate as a

     Unless otherwise specified, four servers for UDP transport are started.

     The following options are available:

     -r      Register the NFS service with portmap(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 servers to create.

     -t      Serve TCP NFS clients.

     -u      Serve UDP NFS clients.

     For example, ``nfsd -u -t -n 6'' serves UDP and TCP transports using six

     A server should run enough daemons to handle the maximum level of concur-
     rency from its clients, typically four to six.

     Nfsd listens for service requests at the port indicated in the NFS server
     specification; see Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC1094
     and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification.

     The nfsd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     nfsstat(1),  nfssvc(2),  mountd(8),  portmap(8)

     The nfsd utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
