pcnfsd

Unix authenticator for NFS

Syntax:

pcnfsd

Runs on:

QNX Neutrino

Options:

None.

Description:

The pcnfsd utility is used for authentication purposes by NFS clients in a PC environment that has no concept of user/password identification (e.g., DOS).

There's no direct check for root on the mount. The nfsd utility checks only that the requests come from a privileged port (which implies root access). The check may be disabled using the -norsvd option in the /etc/exports file.

If a configuration file is present (/etc/pcnfsd.conf), pcnfsd uses the information it contains to replace certain builtin elements.
