Default NFSv4 and hosts.deny, hosts.allow

I'm setting up some NFSv4 shares and am not using kerberos. I know in the NFSv3 days it was recommended to set up /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny as follows.

I have 3 questions:

-1- is this still needed with nfs4?

-2- is this the right list of daemons for NFS v4?

-3- what else might be affected by these restrictions? Apache, mysql or samba, for example? I don't want to lock anything but NFS down without full knowledge of the consequences.


in /etc/hosts.deny disable services for all hosts:


in /etc/hosts.allow enable the services for trusted hosts:

portmap :
lockd :
mountd :
rquotad :
statd :
