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
       during 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.

OPTIONS

       -V, --version
              Shows version of quota tools.

       -s, --no-setquota
              Don’t  allow  setting  of  quotas  (default).  This  option   is
              available  only  if utilities were compiled with the rpcsetquota
              option.

       -S, --setquota
              Allow setting of  quotas.  This  option  is  available  only  if
              utilities 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
              Listen on alternate port port.
