I want to check a remote host.
When I try
Code: Select all
showmount -e <computerIWantToCheck>

I get the following error code
    # mount clntudp_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to receive

Has anyone an idea what this means?

The showmount command requires the portmap program to run on the requested host, and it tries to connect to the UDP port 111. If the portmapper isn't running, or the port number 111 is firewalled out, you'll get this message.
