NAME

       rquotad, rpc.rquotad - remote quota server


SYNOPSIS

       rpc.rquotad [ -sSFI ] [ -p port ]


DESCRIPTION

       rquotad is an rpc(3N) server which returns quotas for a user of a local
       filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS.  It  also
       allows  setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if configured dur-
       ing compilation and allowed by a command line option -S).  The  results
       are  used by quota(1) to display user quotas for remote filesystems and
       by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote filesystems.  rquotad daemon uses
       tcp-wrappers  library  (under service name rquotad) which allows you to
       specify hosts allowed/disallowed to use the daemon (see  hosts.allow(5)
       manpage  for  more information). The rquotad daemon is normally started
       at boot time from the system startup scripts.

              Shows version of quota tools.

       -s, --no-setquota
              Don’t allow setting of quotas (default). This option  is  avail-

              option.

       -S, --setquota
              Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if utili-
              ties were compiled with the rpcsetquota option.

       -F, --foreground
              Run daemon in foreground (may be useful for debugging purposes).

       -I, --autofs
              Do not ignore autofs mountpoints.

       -p port, --port port
