wire-test is used to find out what amd thinks are the first two network interfaces and network names/numbers used, as well as the IP address used for amd to NFS-mount itself.
If host is specified, then wire-test will test for the working combinations of NFS protocol and version from the current client to the NFS server host. If not specified, host defaults to "localhost".
