rpcinfo - report RPC information SYNOPSIS
rpcinfo -p [host?
rpcinfo -b program version
rpcinfo -d program version DESCRIPTION
Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of program on the specified host using UDP , and report whether a response was received.
Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of program on the specified host using TCP , and report whether a response was received.
Use portnum as the port number for the -t and -u options instead of the port number given by the portmapper.
Make an RPC broadcast to procedure 0 of the specified program and version using UDP and report all hosts that respond.
Delete registration for the RPC service of the speci- fied program and version. This option can be exer- cised only by the super-user.
The program argument can be either a name or a number.
If a version is specified, rpcinfo attempts to call that version of the specified program. Otherwise, rpcinfo attempts to find all the registered version numbers for the specified program 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.
To show all of the RPC services registered on the local machine use:
example% rpcinfo -p
To show all of the RPC services registered on the machine named klaxon use:
example% rpcinfo -p klaxon
To show all machines on the local net that are running the Yellow Pages service use:
example% rpcinfo -b ypserv 'version' | uniq
where 'version' is the current Yellow Pages version obtained from the results of the -p switch above.
To delete the registration for version 1 of the walld ser- vice use:
example% rpcinfo -d walld 1 SEE ALSO
In releases prior to SunOS 3.0, the Network File System (NFS) did not register itself with the portmapper; rpcinfo cannot be used to make RPC calls to the NFS server on hosts running such releases.
