RPCINFO(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			       RPCINFO(8)

NAME
     rpcinfo -- report RPC information

SYNOPSIS
     rpcinfo [-m | -s] [host]
     rpcinfo -p [host]
     rpcinfo -T transport host prognum [versnum]
     rpcinfo -l [-T transport] host prognum [versnum]
     rpcinfo [-n portnum] -u host prognum [versnum]
     rpcinfo [-n portnum] [-t] host prognum [versnum]
     rpcinfo -a serv_address -T transport prognum [versnum]
     rpcinfo -b [-T transport] prognum versnum
     rpcinfo -d [-T transport] prognum versnum

DESCRIPTION
     rpcinfo makes an RPC call to an RPC server and reports what it finds.

     In the first synopsis, rpcinfo lists all the registered RPC services with rpcbind on host.
     If host is not specified, the local host is the default.  If -s is used, the information is
     displayed in a concise format.

     In the second synopsis, rpcinfo lists all the RPC services registered with rpcbind, version
     2.  Also note that the format of the information is different in the first and the second
     synopsis.	This is because the second synopsis is an older protocol used to collect the
     information displayed (version 2 of the rpcbind protocol).

     The third synopsis makes an RPC call to procedure 0 of prognum and versnum on the specified
     host and reports whether a response was received.	transport is the transport which has to
     be used for contacting the given service.	The remote address of the service is obtained by
     making a call to the remote rpcbind.

     The prognum argument is a number that represents an RPC program number.  If a versnum is
     specified, rpcinfo attempts to call that version of the specified prognum.  Otherwise,
     rpcinfo attempts to find all the registered version numbers for the specified prognum by
     calling version 0, which is presumed not to exist; if it does exist, rpcinfo attempts to
     obtain this information by calling an extremely high version number instead, and attempts to
     call each registered version.  Note: the version number is required for -b and -d options.

OPTIONS
     -T transport
	     Specify the transport on which the service is required.  If this option is not spec-
	     ified, rpcinfo uses the transport specified in the NETPATH environment variable, or
	     if that is unset or null, the transport in the netconfig(5) database is used.  This
	     is a generic option, and can be used in conjunction with other options as shown in
	     the SYNOPSIS.

     -a serv_address
	     Use serv_address as the (universal) address for the service on transport to ping
	     procedure 0 of the specified prognum and report whether a response was received.
	     The -T option is required with the -a option.

	     If versnum is not specified, rpcinfo tries to ping all available version numbers for
	     that program number.  This option avoids calls to remote rpcbind to find the address
	     of the service.  The serv_address is specified in universal address format of the
	     given transport.

     -b      Make an RPC broadcast to procedure 0 of the specified prognum and versnum and report
	     all hosts that respond.  If transport is specified, it broadcasts its request only
	     on the specified transport.  If broadcasting is not supported by any transport, an
	     error message is printed.	Use of broadcasting should be limited because of the
	     potential for adverse effect on other systems.

     -d      Delete registration for the RPC service of the specified prognum and versnum.  If
	     transport is specified, unregister the service on only that transport, otherwise
	     unregister the service on all the transports on which it was registered.  Only the
	     owner of a service can delete a registration, except the super-user who can delete
	     any service.

     -l      Display a list of entries with a given prognum and versnum on the specified host.
	     Entries are returned for all transports in the same protocol family as that used to
	     contact the remote rpcbind.

     -m      Display a table of statistics of rpcbind operations on the given host.  The table
	     shows statistics for each version of rpcbind (versions 2, 3 and 4), giving the num-
	     ber of times each procedure was requested and successfully serviced, the number and
	     type of remote call requests that were made, and information about RPC address
	     lookups that were handled. This is useful for monitoring RPC activities on host.

     -n portnum
	     Use portnum as the port number for the -t and -u options instead of the port number
	     given by rpcbind.	Use of this option avoids a call to the remote rpcbind to find
	     out the address of the service. This option is made obsolete by the -a option.

     -p      Probe rpcbind on host using version 2 of the rpcbind protocol, and display a list of
	     all registered RPC programs.  If host is not specified, it defaults to the local
	     host.  Note: Version 2 of the rpcbind protocol was previously known as the portmap-
	     per protocol.

     -s      Display a concise list of all registered RPC programs on host.  If host is not spec-
	     ified, it defaults to the local host.

     -t      Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of prognum on the specified host using TCP, and
	     report whether a response was received. This option is made obsolete by the -T
	     option as shown in the third synopsis.

     -u      Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of prognum on the specified host using UDP, and
	     report whether a response was received. This option is made obsolete by the -T
	     option as shown in the third synopsis.

EXAMPLES
     To show all of the RPC services registered on the local machine use:

	     example% rpcinfo

     To show all of the RPC services registered with rpcbind on the machine named klaxon use:

	     example% rpcinfo klaxon

     The information displayed by the above commands can be quite lengthy.  Use the -s option to
     display a more concise list:

	     example$ rpcinfo -s klaxon

     program   version(s)   netid(s)		      service	 owner
     100000    2,3,4	    local,tcp,udp,tcp6,udp6   rpcbind	 super-user
     100008    1	    udp,tcp,udp6,tcp6	      walld	 super-user
     100002    2,1	    udp,udp6		      rusersd	 super-user
     100001    2,3,4	    udp,udp6		      rstatd	 super-user
     100012    1	    udp,tcp		      sprayd	 super-user
     100007    3	    udp,tcp		      ypbind	 super-user

     To show whether the RPC service with program number prognum and version versnum is regis-
     tered on the machine named klaxon for the transport TCP use:

	     example% rpcinfo -T tcp klaxon prognum versnum

     To show all RPC services registered with version 2 of the rpcbind protocol on the local
     machine use:

	     example% rpcinfo -p

     To delete the registration for version 1 of the walld (program number 100008 ) service for
     all transports use:

	     example# rpcinfo -d 100008 1

     or

	     example# rpcinfo -d walld 1
