SHOWMOUNT(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  SHOWMOUNT(8)

NAME
     showmount -- show remote nfs mounts on host

SYNOPSIS
     showmount [-a | -d] [-e3] [host]

DESCRIPTION
     The showmount utility shows status	information about the NFS server on
     host.  By default 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.

     The following options are available:

     -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.

SEE ALSO
     mount(8), mountd(8), mount_nfs(8)

HISTORY
     The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.

BUGS
     The mount daemon running on the server only has an	idea of	the actual
     mounts, since the NFS server is stateless.	 The showmount utility will
     only display the information as accurately	as the mount daemon reports
     it.
