GETRPCPORT(3)             OpenBSD Programmer's Manual            GETRPCPORT(3)

     getrpcport - get RPC port number

     #include <rpc/rpc.h>

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

     getrpcport() returns the port number for version versnum of the RPC pro-
     gram 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 pro-
     gram is indeed registered.  The version mismatch will be detected upon
     the first call to the service.
