Also remember that, since not all systems follow the rules, for NFS over UDP:
- If you export part of a filesystem you allow acces to all of it .
- If you allow one system access you give everone access.
- If you give one system write access you give everyone write access.
 This is true for TCP as well, but is made harder if the inode
generation numbers have been randomised - see fsirand(8).
