Q: how to call rpc.mountd from rpc-inetd?

Q: how to call rpc.mountd from rpc-inetd?

Post by Kang-Jin L » Wed, 16 Feb 1994 01:32:33

I ran into some problems with nfs-server-2.0.tar.Z from

Nfsd works fine when started in rc.net.
I followed the docs and tried to make mountd run from inetd, but without any
succes. Inetd is from rpc-0.9.tar.Z and inetd.conf is edited as desribed in
the docs. Mountd works when started from rc.net.

Am I missing something obvious?

Linux 0.99.15b, Libc 4.5.19, inetd from rpc-0.9.tar.Z, tcpd-140.tar.z.

Thank you for your answers,

1. How to use rpc.portmap, rpc.mountd, rpc.nfsd?

[Q2] Stupid but non-FAQ NFS question #2:
Thanks for the help of finding out the rpc.portmap, rpc.mountd, rcp.nfsd.  
Still, after reading the NFS-FAQ, Linux Network Admin Guide, none of these guys
seem to work at all.  I still get the message of RPC fault: program is not
registered.  I guess I really need a cookbook example.

Let's say I have machines A and B which both of them can telnet and ftp to each
other.  In other words, they are properly connected.  Now, this is how I did.
I add three statements at the begninning of the rc.inet2 at machine A:

/bin/mount -t nfs B:/home /mnt

Then, I add /mnt B[rw] at /etc/exports at machine A.
Then, reboot machine A, and it prompts RPC fault: program is not registered.
Can anyone provide me an idiot-proof way of attacking this?  Thanks.
BTW, someone mention "premeter".  What is that?
