GETRPCPORT(3)              Library Functions Manual              GETRPCPORT(3)

     getrpcport - get RPC port number

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     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.
