    I'm setting up some NFSv4 shares and am not using kerberos. I know in the NFSv3 days it was recommended to set up /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny as follows.

    I have 3 questions:

    -1- is this still needed with nfs4?

    -2- is this the right list of daemons for NFS v4?

    -3- what else might be affected by these restrictions? Apache, mysql or samba, for example? I don't want to lock anything but NFS down without full knowledge of the consequences.


    in /etc/hosts.deny disable services for all hosts:


    in /etc/hosts.allow enable the services for trusted hosts:

    portmap :
    lockd :
    mountd :
    rquotad :
    statd :
