       rquotad, rpc.rquotad - remote quota server

       rpc.rquotad [ -sSFI ] [ -p port ]

       rquotad	is an rpc(3) 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 dur-
       ing 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.

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

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

       -S, --setquota
	      Allow setting of quotas. This option is available only if utili-
	      ties 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.

       -x path, --xtab path
	      Set  an  alternative  file  with NFSD export table. This file is
	      used to determine pseudoroot of NFSv4 exports. The pseudoroot is
	      then  prepended to each relative path (i.e. a path not beginning
	      by '/') received in a quota RPC request.

       aquota.user or aquota.group

			   non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user or quota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab	   default filesystems
