I made a new entry for rquotad in /etc/xinetd.d on the server, enabled
the rquotad service, ensured that it was allowed in /etc/hosts.allow,
then told xinetd to reload and ensured that rpc.rquotad had been
registered with portmap.

After all this, when running "quota" on the client, I was told that I
had no quota, and "quota -v" showed all entries as "0", despite having a

Unfortunately, it turns out that on my system, the server was unable to
determine the correct quota, because the entry in /etc/exports on the
server was different to the entry in /etc/mtab on the client (the server
exports /export/home, but the clients use autofs to mount
/export/home/<user> on /home/<user>).

I found it useful to run /sbin/rpc.rquotad on the command line to easily
see any output.

Hope something I just said helps
