help with portmapper message

Post by Richard Schwarz » Sun, 13 Sep 1998 04:00:00



I am getting "portmapper on server 192.1.1.80 is not responding" on a new
server I am testing. Its a Dell 6300 with 2 Xeon 400 cpus, Netgear FA310TX
10/100 NIC (Dec 21140 chip) and 5.0.4c with oss469b installed. I got the
same message with a previous NIC I tried - it used the Dec 21143 chip with
the latest driver at the SCO site.  I followed the steps in TA 102428, and
get the following:

/etc/hosts
127.0.0.1    localhost
192.1.1.80    dymxlax    dymxlax.lax.dynamex.com

uname -n
dymxlax

hostname
dymx.lax.dynamex.com

ifconfig -a

lo0: flags=4049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu8232 inet 17.0.0.1 netmask
7f000000 perf. params:
recv size: 57344; send size: 57344; full-size frames: 1

atl0: flags=404a<BROADCAST,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu8232
inet 0.0.0.0 netmask 7f000000 perf. params recv size: 4096;
send size: 8192; full-size frames: 1

Any help would be great...

You either omitted part of the ifconfig output or you haven't
configured the NIC into the system.....and that will cause the
portmapper message to appear.

Incorrectly configured NIC, NIC configured but not found and errors
in /etc/hosts will all cause this message.  There are later drivers
for that card, try them if all else fails.

Thanks - I thought I was using the correct drivers and config info - I
finally tried a 3Com 3c905b and it worked just fine.  SCO could autodetect
it and it matched the config info that I got from my server setup CD.  I
have used the DEC-based cards before but not with such a new and complex
box.

1. Help with Portmapper

When I boot (Linux .99pl5) the OS, I get the following message (my machine
is on the network):

mount clntudp_create : RPC : Port mapper failure - RPC : Unable to send

Does anyone know what is causing it?  It doesn't seem to interfere with
networking.

Thanks,
