Posted on: 07/25/2005 05:49 AM

A nfs-utils update has been released for Fedora Core 4

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 4
Name : nfs-utils
Version : 1.0.7
Release : 10
Summary : NFS utilities and supporting daemons for the kernel NFS server.
Description :
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools, providing a much higher level of performance than the traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

This package also contains the showmount program. Showmount queries the mount daemon on a remote host for information about the NFS (Network File System) server on the remote host.

Update Information:

This patch make the '-p port' argument work as well as adds the following command line arguments to rpc.nfsd:

-N or --no-nfs-version vers
This option can be used to request that rpc.nfsd does not offer
certain versions of NFS. The current version of rpc.nfsd can
support both NFS version 2,3 and the newer version 4.

-T or --no-tcp
Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting TCP connections from clients.

-U or --no-udp
Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting UDP connections from clients.

Note: the kernel functionality needed to support these patch is in 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4
* Fri Jul 15 2005 Steve Dickson lt;SteveD@RedHat.comgt; 1.0.7-9

command line flags to rpc.nfsd.

* Thu Jun 16 2005 Steve Dickson lt;SteveD@RedHat.comgt; 1.0.7-9

init script will bring the daemon up and down (bz 160570)
