rpcbind - universal addresses to RPC prgram number mapper
rpcbind [ -d ] [ -w ]
rpcbind(8scl) is a server that converts RPC program numbers into uni‐
versal addresses. It must be running on a host in order for applica‐
tions to be able to make RPC calls to a server on that machine.
Refer to the Solaris rpcbind(1M) man pages for a description of all the
available options with this utility.
SCL IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
rpcbind(8scl) is a utility made available for use with the RPC compo‐
nent of the SCL (Solaris Compatibility Libraries). rpcbind(8scl) is a
direct port of the code placed in the public domain by Sun. See
scl_rpc(3scl) for more information.
rpcbind(8scl) is used by the SCL RPC library to replace the functional‐
ity provided by the standard portmap(8) program. portmap(8) is hard-
coded to bind to port 111 on TCP and UDP; therefore, rpcbind(8scl)
should be configured to use a different (spare) port number.
By default, rpcbind(8scl) is located in the /usr/opt/solcomplib/bin
directory. Refer to scl_intro(3scl) for information on how to use a
rpcbind(8scl) uses the file scl_netconfig(4scl) to ascertain which net‐
work devices are available for use by SCL RPC.
rpcbind(8scl) uses the services(4) file to determine which port number
to use for TCP and/or UDP transports. This file must contain at least
one entry for the service scl_rpcbind.
In addition to writing messages to the SCL error log, rpcbind(8scl) may
use syslogd(8) to log diagnostic messages when running as a daemon
