rpc – rpc program number data base





The rpc file contains user readable names that can be used in place of RPC program numbers. For each RPC program a single line should be present with the following information:

  1. name of the RPC program
  2. RPC program number
  3. aliases

Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters. A hash ("#") indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file.




Below is an example of an RPC database:
#       rpc
rpcbind         100000  portmap sunrpc portmapper
rusersd         100002  rusers
nfs             100003  nfsprog
mountd          100005  mount   showmount
walld           100008  rwall   shutdown
sprayd          100012  spray
llockmgr        100020
nlockmgr        100021
status          100024
bootparam       100026
keyserv         100029  keyserver
