NFS was not designed with security in mind, and has a number of weaknesses, both in terms of the protocol itself and because any NFS installation must expose several daemons, running on both servers and clients, to network attack. I use my Debian / Ubuntu Linux based server only to server web pages and nothing else. How do I disable NFS services under Debian or Ubuntu Linux?
How do I start and stop the NFS service and/or server using the command prompt? How do I make sure NFS always stars automatically when system boots or restarts under RHEL based systems?
