Functions marked with an asterisk are retained for ease of porting.
svc_destroy svcfd_create *svc_raw_create *svc_tp_create *svcudp_create *svc_udp_bufcreate svc_create svc_dg_create svc_fd_create svc_raw_create svc_tli_create svc_tp_create svc_vc_create
*registerrpc *svc_register *svc_unregister xprt_register xprt_unregister rpc_reg svc_reg svc_unreg
The following functions are unchanged from previous releases and are available in the current SunOS release:
*callrpc clnt_call *svc_getcaller - works only with IP-based transports rpc_call svc_getrpccaller
clnt_broadcast() can broadcast only to the portmap service. It does not support rpcbind.
The rpc_broadcast function broadcasts to both portmap and rpcbind and is also available in the current SunOS release.
The following functions work with portmap:
pmap_set pmap_unset pmap_getport pmap_getmaps pmap_rmtcall
The following functions work with rpcbind:
rpcb_set rpcb_unset rpcb_getaddr rpcb_getmaps rpcb_rmtcall
authdes_create authunix_create authunix_create_default authdes_seccreate authsys_create authsys_create_default
rpcbind provides a time service, primarily for use by secure RPC client-server time synchronization, available through the rpcb_gettime() function. pmap_getport() and rpcb_getaddr() can be used to get the port number of a registered service. rpcb_getaddr() communicates with any server running version 2, 3, or 4 of rcpbind. pmap_getport() can only communicate with version 2.
