Ok, I've decided I want to do some RPC programming on Linux (I'm using
RedHat 4.2.) I recently did some work with BSD sockets in a
communications class at University. So, I picked up "Power Programming
with RPC" by John Bloomer which was suggested to me by one of my profs.
Now my problem is, I have an example from the book finally compiled but
whenever I try to run the server I get and error reporting thet the
service cannot be registered. After nosing around for a while I found
the rpcinfo utility. The message I get back from rpcinfo -p is
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC Remote system error -
Anybody a little more experienced than me know whats going on? It
almost looks to me like the portmapper doesn't even exits on my
system... Any help would be appreciated.
