Description mark.kennedy 1999-06-16 14:20:47 UTC
the xfs man page says that xfs opens TCP port 7100
by default.  however, commands which attempt to use
that port (xset, fsinfo, fslsinfo) fail indicating
that xfs isn't listening.  "lsof -p <xfs process>"
says:


# lsof -p 2120

#

which suggests that it has created a socket but not
bound a protocol (like TCP) nor a protocol endpoint
(like 7100) to it?
