Question rc.tcpip for Linux

I'm new to Linux and am trying to figure out where the Portmap daemon is explicitly started when a Linux box is first booted. I believe that AIX uses rc.tcpip in the /etc folder, but can't find the equivalent under Linux.

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

That will depend on which distro you're using...
In slack portmap is startd by /etc/rc.d/rc.portmap
(which is being started by /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2).

I'm using Redhat Enterprise Server. I read on the Redhat web site that Portmap is now part of the kernel for NFSv4. How do I determine the version of NFS I'm running?
