       plpnfsd  [-V]  [-v]  [-D] [-h] [-p [host:]port] [-d mount-
       dir] [-u user] [long-options]


       plpnfsd is a daemon, which  provides  NFS-like  access  to
       your  Psion.  It automatically makes the Psion's file-sys­
       tems available below  an  NFS-mounted  directory  (default
       /mnt/psion).   By default, plpnfsd is installed suid-root,
       so any normal user can  start  it  and  gets  the  mounted
       directory  owned  by  himself.  As this program is usually
       used on single-user machines, this does not hurt security.
       Like  the  other  front-ends, this program auto-reconnects
       after a link-failure, so you can keep  the  psion  mounted
       all  the  time,  even  when  it  is not connected.  Due to
       Rudolf Koenig's clever error-handling, you don't  need  to
       worry about blocked io-processes if the psion isn't avail­
       able.  You simply will  get  an  "device  not  configured"
       error,  when  accessing  a  file on a previously connected
       psion which has been disconnected. After that, the  mount-
       point  will appear with the drives missing. As soon as the
       psion is connected again, the subdirectories will reappear
       (possibly with a few seconds delay).


       -V, --version
              Display the version and exit

       -h, --help
              Display a short help text and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Produce  verbose  logging  output. Can be specified
              more than once to increase the debug level (up to 3

       -p, --port=[host:]port
              Specify  the  host and port to connect to (e.g. the
              port where ncpd is listening on) - by  default  the
              host  is  and  the  port is looked up in
              /etc/services. If it is not found  there,  a  fall-
              back builtin of 7501.

       -d, --mountpoint=mount-dir
              Specify  the directory to mount the psion file sys­
              tem on. This defaults to /mnt/psion

       -u, --user=user
              Specify the user who will own the psion files. This

              shows the Psion's owner information.

              The  superuser  (root)  can  set  the  owner of the
              mounted directory-tree during  runtime  by  writing
              the desired user-name into this file.
