       portmap - The DARPA port to RPC program number mapper


       The  portmap  daemon  is	 a  server that converts Remote Procedure Call
       (RPC) program numbers into Defense Advanced  Research  Projects	Agency
       (DARPA)	protocol port numbers. It must be running in order to make RPC

       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.

       The portmap daemon must be started before any  RPC  servers,  including
       mountd  and  nfsd,  are	invoked.   Note	 that  if portmap crashes, all
       servers must be restarted.
