SHOWMOUNT(8) BSD System Manager's Manual SHOWMOUNT(8)
showmount - show remote nfs mounts on host
showmount [-ade3] [host]
Showmount shows status information about the NFS server on host. By de-
fault it prints the names of all hosts that have NFS file systems mounted
on the host. See NFS: Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC
1094, Appendix A, and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol
Specification, Appendix I, for a detailed description of the protocol.
-a List all mount points in the form: host:dirpath
-d List directory paths of mount points instead of hosts
-e Show the host's exports list
-3 Use mount protocol Version 3, compatible with NFS Version 3.
The mount daemon running on the server only has an idea of the actual
mounts, since the NFS server is stateless. Showmount will only display
the information as accurately as the mount daemon reports it.
The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
