Portmapper will not run

Slackware 10 portmapper is not running
and I can't figure out how to get it going.
How do you get portmapper to run?
I need it for a Network File System link
with another computer on a private network
using a crossover line.
The two computers ping just fine, but I
need to get portmapper running on the
client to mount a directory in the server.
This is weird. Both computers have
Slackware 10, yet one runs portmapper
( rpcinfo -p and ps aux | grep portmap
commands show this ) while the other
doesn't. I've read the NTF-HOWTO and the
man files for portmap but I still can not
figure it out. Any ideas would be most

root@silas:~# ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.portmap
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 905 2003-09-14 07:38 /etc/rc.d/rc.portmap
root@silas:~# /etc/rc.d/rc.portmap restart

Pretty much that simple. If it's not executable, as root issue "chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.portmap"


portmapper, slackware
