rusersd - network username server
/usr/lib/netsvc/rusers/rpc.rusersd [-l log_file] [-e|-n]
rusersd is an RPC server that returns a list of users on the network.
The rusers command prints this information (see rusers(1)).
inetd invokes rusersd through /etc/inetd.conf (see inetd(1M)).
rusersd recognizes the following options and command-line arguments:
-l log_file Log any errors to the named log file, log_file.
Errors are not logged if the -l option is not
Information logged to the file includes date and
time of the error, the host name, process ID and
name of the function generating the error, and the
error message. Note that different services can
share a single log file since enough information
is included to uniquely identify each error.
-e Exit after serving each RPC request. Using the -e
option, the inetd security file /var/adm/inetd.sec
can control access to RPC services.
-n Exit only if
+ portmap dies (see portmap(1M)),
+ another rpc.rusersd registers with
+ rpc.rusersd becomes unregistered with
The -n option is more efficient because a new
process is not launched for each RPC request.
This option is the default.
