NAME

  nfsportmon - Turns the port monitor on or off

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/nfsportmon option

OPTIONS

  on  Turns the	port monitor on.

  off Turns the	port monitor off.

DESCRIPTION

  The nfsportmon command turns the port	monitor	on or off at the kernel
  level. By default, the port monitor is turned	off.

  When the port	monitor	is on, NFS server port checking	is activated.  This
  checking increases system security by	ensuring that file access requests
  were generated by the	client kernel rather than by a forged application
  program, for example.

  Turning the port monitor on is only in effect	until the system is rebooted.
  To turn the port monitor on each time	the system is rebooted,	edit the
  /etc/inet.local file and add an nfsportmon entry to it.

  Only the superuser or	root can run nfsportmon.
