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

NAME
     rpcinfo --	report RPC information

SYNOPSIS
     rpcinfo [-m | -s] [host]
     rpcinfo [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
     The rpcinfo utility 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	for-
     mat.

     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 sec-
     ond synopsis is an	older protocol used to collect the information dis-
     played (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 mak-
     ing 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 regis-
     tered 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 specified, rpcinfo uses the transport specified in
	     the NETPATH environment variable, or if that is unset or empty,
	     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 spec-
	     ified, it broadcasts its request only on the specified transport.
	     If	broadcasting is	not supported by any transport,	an error mes-
	     sage 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 number 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 ser-
	     vice.  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 portmapper pro-
	     tocol.

     -s	     Display a concise list of all registered RPC programs on host.
	     If	host is	not specified, 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	    unix,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	registered 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 proto-
     col 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
