Description Candidates should be able to export filesystems using NFS. This objective includes access restrictions, mounting an NFS filesystem on a client and securing NFS.

Key Knowledge Areas:

  • NFS version 3 configuration files
  • NFS tools and utilities
  • Access restrictions to certain hosts and/or subnets
  • Mount options on server and client
  • TCP Wrappers
  • Awareness of NFSv4

The following is a partial list of the used files, terms and utilities:

  • /etc/exports
  • exportfs
  • showmount
  • nfsstat
  • /proc/mounts
  • /etc/fstab
  • rpcinfo
  • mountd
  • portmapper


For this we are using Debian Wheezy 7.4

apt-get install nfs-kernel-server
update-rc.d nfs-kernel-server defaults
vi /etc/exports
service nfs-kernel-server restart
showmount -e
rpcinfo -p
