The portmapper (/sbin/rpc.portmap) is a network daemon used to manage
connections to RPC services.  Daemons that offer RPC services (such
as the daemons for NFS) tell the portmapper on what port they listen.
Unlike the services registered with the inetd, RPC network port
numbers may change each time the system is booted.
The portmapper is required to use NFS or other RPC services.
