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

NAME
     showmount -- show remote nfs mounts on host

SYNOPSIS
     showmount [-ade3] [host]

DESCRIPTION
     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.

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

BUGS
     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.

HISTORY
     The showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
