rquotad is an
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 during compilation and allowed by a command line option
-S). The results are used by
to display user quotas for remote filesystems and by
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
manpage for more information). The
rquotad daemon is normally started at boot time from the
system startup scripts.
