RPC port mapper
Portmap is a server that converts RPC (Remote Procedure Call) program
numbers into DARPA protocol port numbers. It must be running in order
to make RPC calls.
Services that use RPC include NFS and NIS.
portmap-6.0 is the first release in 10 year of portmap based on the code
from Wietse Venema.
It consolidates patches that various Linux distributions were shipping
with their versions of portmap, and add some more functionality.
