    Default open-e NFS server implementation

    In open-e DSS, is the NFS server functionality provided by the Linux kernel nfsd?

    Default

    Yes, when enabeling the service in the GUI from NAS Settings.

    Todd, thanks for your reply. However, my question was a bit different.

    Let me rephrase it:

    Is the open-e NFS server the "stock" NFS server that is part of the Linux kernel?

    *OR* has open-e implemented it's own NFS server (i.e not part of the Linux kernel)?

    Not being a linux guy, I need to ask the question... what would be the difference/why does it matter?

    It's part of the kernel we have support for NFS version 3 and 4 protocol.

    This is very easy to find out with downloading the Trial version of DSS V6 or DSS Lite as you can see what kernel version we are using also from the logs - we are using the NFS that is part of the Linux kernel.

    If you dont mind could you explain why to help others understand the difference.
    All the best,
