         rpcbind [-adhiLls]


         The rpcbind utility is a server that converts RPC program numbers into
         universal addresses.  It must be running on the host to be able to make
         RPC calls on a server on that machine.
         When an RPC service is started, it tells rpcbind the address at which it
         is listening, and the RPC program numbers it is prepared to serve.  When
         a client wishes to make an RPC call to a given program number, it first
         contacts rpcbind on the server machine to determine the address where RPC
         requests should be sent.
         The rpcbind utility should be started before any other RPC service.  Nor-
         mally, standard RPC servers are started by port monitors, so rpcbind must
         be started before port monitors are invoked.
         When rpcbind is started, it checks that certain name-to-address transla-
         tion-calls function correctly.  If they fail, the network configuration
         databases may be corrupt.  Since RPC services cannot function correctly
         in this situation, rpcbind reports the condition and terminates.
         The rpcbind utility can only be started by the super-user.


         -a      When debugging (-d), do an abort on errors.
         -d      Run in debug mode.  In this mode, rpcbind will not fork when it
                 starts, will print additional information during operation, and
                 will abort on certain errors if -a is also specified.  With this
                 option, the name-to-address translation consistency checks are
                 shown in detail.
         -h      Specify specific IP addresses to bind to for UDP requests.  This
                 option may be specified multiple times and is typically necessary
                 when running on a multi-homed host.  If no -h option is speci-
                 fied, rpcbind will bind to INADDR_ANY, which could lead to prob-
                 lems on a multi-homed host due to rpcbind returning a UDP packet
                 from a different IP address than it was sent to.  Note that when
                 specifying IP addresses with -h, rpcbind will automatically add
        and if IPv6 is enabled, ::1 to the list.
         -i      "Insecure" mode.  Allow calls to SET and UNSET from any host.
                 Normally rpcbind accepts these requests only from the loopback
                 interface for security reasons.  This change is necessary for
                 programs that were compiled with earlier versions of the rpc
                 library and do not make those requests using the loopback inter-
         -l      Turn on libwrap connection logging.
         -s      Cause rpcbind to change to the user daemon as soon as possible.
