Question How to check that rpcbind/portmap on AIX allowes updates from non privileged ports?

Hi,

I am trying to implement a service on AIX based on ONCRPC protocal and I want to use a RPC library called oncrpc4j because it is a non-blocked i/o library. I found it works fine on my work machine (WIndows 7) but failed on my AIX work station. The author of oncrpc4j told me that check that rpcbind/portmap on AIX allowes updates from non privileged ports. But I just can find out how to do this, is anybody could provide help? Thank you.

What you are allowed to do is usually a matter of user rights, not of protocols. Please provide details about the user account you want to use to do what you want to do and its properties.

I hope this helps.

Wasn't sure how to word the title... sorry. In HP-UX and AIX specifically you apply a set of patches, not like solaris and linux where you update what's needed individually.
