Description Kevin Verma 2006-03-13 01:51:31 EST
Description of problem:
Suggesting an enhancement to existing portmap

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Portmap either listens to all interfaces or only on loopback,

Expected results:
This should also let have a control feature with option -i to optionally bind
portmap to particular network interface. Also an /etc/sysconfig/portmap is
wished for. 

Additional info:
Comment 1 Steve Dickson 2007-07-11 09:24:23 EDT
ther is a -l that "causes portmap to only bind to the loopback 
interface (i.e. INADDR_LOOPBACK)." as well as a 
[ -f /etc/sysconfig/$prog ] && . /etc/sysconfig/$prog in 
the /etc/init.d/portmap start up script.
