NFS portmap - is it really needed and if so where is it?

Hello All

I is trying to set up NFS for my LAN. The NFS-HOWTO says that portmap,
usually resident in /sbin or /usr/sbin, is essential as it has to be
started first. Well, I don't have it and it does not appear in the
Contents-i386.gz for sid on ftp.uk.debian.org.

So has it been superseded? What do I need to get my NFS server working?

Any help much appreciated.

Description: converts RPC program numbers into universal addresses
The rpcbind utility is a server that converts RPC program numbers
into universal addresses.

Not quite sure why this isn't a depends or suggests of the nfs server
package. Perhaps someone can enlighten me?

But it does.

$ apt-cache show nfs-kernel-server | grep --color nfs-common
Depends: libblkid1 (>= 2.16), libc6 (>= 2.3), libnfsidmap2, libtirpc1, libwrap0 (>= 7.6-4~), nfs-common (= 1:1.2.5-4), ucf, lsb-base (>= 1.3-9ubuntu3)

and then

$ apt-cache show nfs-common | grep --color rpcbind
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3), libcap2 (>= 2.10), libcomerr2 (>= 1.01), libdevmapper1.02.1 (>= 2:1.02.20), libevent-2.0-5 (>= 2.0.16-stable), libgssapi-krb5-2 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libgssglue1, libk5crypto3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libkeyutils1, libkrb5-3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libmount1 (>= 2.19.1), libnfsidmap2, libtirpc1, libwrap0 (>= 7.6-4~), rpcbind, adduser, ucf, lsb-base (>= 1.3-9ubuntu3), initscripts (>= 2.88dsf-13.3)

In recent versions it has changed dependencies from portmap to
rpcbind. Not sure why or what is different between those programs but
in theory they are equivalent and provide the same functionality.

rpcbind has superseded portmap because it adds ipv6 support by using a
new rpc library rather than glibc's ipv4-only rpc support.

Ah, thank you. Of course. I didn't bother to check that far.
