Linux Portmap startup

The portmap startup script

If networking is enabled the portmap(8) program is started as a daemon. This program supports Unix remote procedure call (RPC) functions.

#! /bin/sh
#
# portmap       Start/Stop RPC portmapper
#
# chkconfig: 345 11 89
# description: The portmapper manages RPC connections, which are used by \
#              protocols such as NFS and NIS. The portmap server must be \
#              running on machines which act as servers for protocols which \
#              make use of the RPC mechanism.
