The Network File System (NFS) has no facility to pass ACL information about remote files. Therefore, ACLs are not visible on remote files by NFS. The ls -l command will not show that ACLs exist on a remote file, but the ACL control over access permissions remains effective.

Individual manpage entries specify the behavior of the various system calls, library calls, and commands under these circumstances.

IMPORTANT: Use caution when transferring a file with optional entries over a network, or when manipulating a remote file, because NFS can delete optional entries with no notification.
