                   Network File System (NFS) Version 4         External Data Representation Standard (XDR) Description


   The Network File System (NFS) version 4 protocol is a distributed    file system protocol that owes its heritage to NFS protocol version 2    (RFC 1094) and version 3 (RFC 1813).  Unlike earlier versions, the    NFS version 4 protocol supports traditional file access while    integrating support for file locking and the MOUNT protocol.  In    addition, support for strong security (and its negotiation), COMPOUND    operations, client caching, and internationalization has been added.    Of course, attention has been applied to making NFS version 4 operate    well in an Internet environment.

   RFC 7530 formally obsoletes RFC 3530.  This document, together with    RFC 7530, replaces RFC 3530 as the definition of the NFS version 4    protocol.
