pmap_dump -- print a list of all registered RPC programs SYNOPSIS
The pmap_dump command can be used to restart a running portmapper or to print a list of all registered RPC programs on the local host. If you want to use the program to restart the portmapper you have to redirect the output of pmap_dump to a file. After this you can restart the portmapper and restore the list of the registered RPC programs by feeding the output of pmap_dump to the command. SEE ALSO

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

portmap -- DARPA port to RPC program number mapper SYNOPSIS
portmap [-d] [-v] DESCRIPTION
Portmap is a server that converts RPC program numbers into DARPA protocol port numbers. It must be running in order to make RPC calls. When an RPC server is started, it will tell portmap what port number it is listening to, and what RPC program numbers it is prepared to serve. When a client wishes to make an RPC call to a given program number, it will first contact portmap on the server machine to determine the port number where RPC packets should be sent. Portmap must be started before any RPC servers are invoked. Normally portmap forks and dissociates itself from the terminal like any other daemon. Portmap then logs errors using syslog(3). Option available: -d (debug) prevents portmap from running as a daemon, and causes errors and debugging information to be printed to the standard error output. -v (verbose) run portmap in verbose mode. This portmap version is protected by the tcp_wrapper library. You have to give the clients access to portmap if they should be allowed to use it. To allow connects from clients of the domain you could use the following line in /etc/hosts.allow: portmap: You have to use the daemon name portmap for the daemon name (even if the binary has a different name). For the client names you can use the keyword ALL, IP addresses, hostnames or domain names. For further information please have a look at the tcpd((8)), hosts_allow((5)) and hosts_access((5)) manual pages. SEE ALSO

If portmap crashes, all rpc servers must be restarted. HISTORY
