By default it prints the names of all hosts that have .Tn NFS file systems mounted on the host. See .%T "NFS: Network File System Protocol Specification" , RFC 1094, Appendix A, and .%T "NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification" , Appendix I, for a detailed description of the protocol. .Bl -tag -width Ds .It Fl a List all mount points in the form: .Bd -ragged -offset indent -compact .Ar host : Ns Ar dirpath .Ed .It Fl d List directory paths of mount points instead of hosts .It Fl e Show the .Ar host Ns 's exports list .It Fl 3 Use mount protocol Version 3, compatible with NFS Version 3. .El .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr mount 1 , .Xr mountd 8 .Sh BUGS The mount daemon running on the server only has an idea of the actual mounts, since the .Tn NFS server is stateless. .Nm Showmount will only display the information as accurately as the mount daemon reports it. .Sh HISTORY The .Nm showmount utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
