Does NFS support ACLs?

Last Modified: 2018-01-26
Does NFS support ACL's? I've put the following in my /etc/exports file:


and it didn't complain. And I put the following in my /etc/auto.misc file on the client:

Desktop -fstype=nfs,nfsvers=3,acl,rw mail:/redirectedFolders/Users/mark/Desktop

and it didn't complain either, but when I examine the files so mounted there are no '+' signs at the end of the permissions, so it must not be working just like that.

Does anyone have any insight?
