Fedora Updated package.
Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : nfs-utils
Version     : 1.0.7                      
Release     : 10                  
Summary     : NFS utilities and supporting daemons for the kernel NFS server.
Description :
The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and
related tools, providing a much higher level of performance than the
traditional Linux NFS server used by most users.

This package also contains the showmount program. Showmount queries
the mount daemon on a remote host for information about the NFS
(Network File System) server on the remote host.

Update Information:

This patch make the '-p port'  argument work as well as 
adds the following command line arguments to rpc.nfsd:

    -N  or  --no-nfs-version vers
        This option can be used to request that rpc.nfsd does not  offer
        certain  versions of NFS. The current version of rpc.nfsd can
        support both NFS version 2,3 and the newer version 4.

    -T  or  --no-tcp
        Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting TCP connections from clients.

    -U  or  --no-udp
        Disable rpc.nfsd from accepting UDP connections from clients. 

Note: the kernel functionality needed to support these patch is in 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4
* Fri Jul 15 2005 Steve Dickson  1.0.7-9
- Add ctlbits patch that introduced the -N -T and -U
  command line flags to rpc.nfsd.

* Thu Jun 16 2005 Steve Dickson  1.0.7-9
- Removed the chkconfig-ing of rpcsvcgssd since the  
  init script will bring the daemon up and down (bz 160570)
