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

     rpcinfo 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 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.

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 results 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.
