NAME

       rpc.svcgssd - server-side rpcsec_gss daemon

SYNOPSIS

       rpc.svcgssd [-v] [-r] [-i] [-f] [-p pipefsdir]

DESCRIPTION

       The  rpcsec_gss  protocol  gives  a  means of using the gss-api generic
       security  api  to  provide  security  for  protocols  using   rpc   (in
       particular, nfs).  Before exchanging any rpc requests using rpcsec_gss,
       the rpc client must first establish a security  context  with  the  rpc
       server.  The linux kernel’s implementation of rpcsec_gss depends on the
       userspace daemon rpc.svcgssd to handle context establishment on the rpc
       server.   The  daemon  uses files in the proc filesystem to communicate
       with the kernel.

OPTIONS

       -f     Runs rpc.svcgssd in the foreground and sends  output  to  stderr
              (as opposed to syslogd)

       -v     Increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
              times).

       -r     If  the  rpcsec_gss  library  supports  setting   debug   level,
              increases the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple
              times).

       -i     If the nfsidmap library supports setting debug level,  increases
              the verbosity of the output (can be specified multiple times).
