GETRPCPORT(3R)                                                  GETRPCPORT(3R)



NAME
       getrpcport - get RPC port number

SYNOPSIS
       int getrpcport(host, prognum, versnum, proto)
       char *host;
       int prognum, versnum, proto;

DESCRIPTION
       getrpcport()  returns  the  port  number for version versnum of the RPC
       program prognum running on host and using protocol proto.  It returns 0
       if  it  cannot contact the portmapper, or if prognum is not registered.
       If prognum is registered but not with version versnum,  it  will  still
       return  a port number (for some version of the program) indicating that
       the program  is  indeed  registered.   The  version  mismatch  will  be
       detected upon the first call to the service.
