Network File System (NFS)

XXX - add a brief NFS description here


XXX - add a brief description of NFS history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The NFS dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

See NFS_Preferences.

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of NFS display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Show only the NFS traffic:


Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter NFS while capturing. However, if you know the port used (see above), you can filter on that one.

Capture NFS traffic over the default port (2049):

 port 2049
