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

NAME
     rpcinfo --	report RPC information

SYNOPSIS
     rpcinfo -p	[host]
     rpcinfo [-n portnum] -u host program [version]
     rpcinfo [-n portnum] -t host program [version]
     rpcinfo -b	program	version
     rpcinfo -d	program	version

DESCRIPTION
     The rpcinfo utility makes an RPC call to an RPC server and	reports	what
     it	finds.

OPTIONS
     -p	     Probe the portmapper on host, and print a list of all registered
	     RPC programs.  If host is not specified, it defaults to the value
	     returned by hostname(1).

     -u	     Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of	program	on the specified host
	     using UDP,	and report whether a response was received.

     -t	     Make an RPC call to procedure 0 of	program	on the specified host
	     using TCP,	and report whether a response was received.

     -n	     Use portnum as the	port number for	the -t and -u options instead
	     of	the port number	given by the portmapper.

     -b	     Make an RPC broadcast to procedure	0 of the specified program and
	     version using UDP and report all hosts that respond.

     -d	     Delete registration for the RPC service of	the specified program
	     and version.  This	option can be exercised	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 regis-
     tered 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 in-
     stead) and	attempts to call each registered version.  Note: the version
     number is required	for -b and -d options.

EXAMPLES
     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 re-
     sults of the -p switch above.

     To	delete the registration	for version 1 of the walld service use:

	   example% rpcinfo -d walld 1

BUGS
     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.
