Currently its just the client.  I'm working on the server portion now.  The
that's got me scratching my head is the authentication model.  RFS uses a
userid plus an encrypted password to authenticate once the connection is
established at mount time.  With the RFS server side of it, I'm bending
towards a kerberos model or a PAM (Pluggable Authentication Module).
The easiest way to go would be to use a UID/GID, but then it wouldn't be
any more secure than an NFS client.
