The NFS version 3 protocol was designed to allow different operating systems to share files. However, since it was designed in a UNIX environment, many operations have semantics similar to the operations of the UNIX file system. This section discusses some of the general implementation-specific details and semantic issues. Procedure descriptions have implementation comments specific to that procedure.

A number of papers have been written describing issues encountered when constructing an NFS version 2 protocol implementation. The best overview paper is still [Sandberg]. [Israel], [Macklem], and [Pawlowski] describe other implementations. [X/OpenNFS] provides a complete description of the NFS version 2 protocol and supporting protocols, as well as a discussion on implementation issues and procedure and error semantics. Many of the issues encountered when constructing an NFS version 2 protocol implementation will be encountered when constructing an NFS version 3 protocol implementation.
