rpc.rquotad is an rpc(3) server which returns quotas for a user of a
local filesystem which is mounted by a remote machine over the NFS.
It also allows setting of quotas on NFS mounted filesystem (if
configured during compilation and allowed by a command line option
-S). The results are used by quota(1) to display user quotas for
remote filesystems and by edquota(8) to set quotas on remote
filesystems. rquotad daemon uses tcp-wrappers library (under service
name rquotad) which allows you to specify hosts allowed/disallowed to
use the daemon (see hosts.allow(5) manpage for more information). The
rquotad daemon is normally started at boot time from the system
