NFS server questions

But i'm still not sure of some things though,

exactly what is the difference between async and sync?

and why do i use 'portmap:ALL' in hosts.deny? Can you tell me alittle more about portmap or where i can read some so i can understand it fully.

Btw, first my mounting was very very slow on the client machine, then i started portmap on the client machine and it worked fine, why is that?

Thx in advance ..

you want the sync option, async breaks the NFS convention, and portmap is required to mount nfs shares
