Lists programs on remote computers. The rpcinfo command-line utility makes a remote procedure call (RPC) to an RPC server and reports what it finds. For examples of how this command can be used, see Examples.

Syntax
rpcinfo [/p [<Node>]] [/b <Program Version>] [/t <Node Program> [<Version>]] [/u <Node Program> [<Version>]]
Parameters

 

Parameter Description

/p [<Node>]

Lists all programs registered with the port mapper on the specified host. If you do not specify a node (computer) name, the program queries the port mapper on the local host.

/b <Program Version>

Requests a response from all network nodes that have the specified program and version registered with the port mapper. You must specify both a program name or number and a version number.

/t <Node Program> [<Version>]

Uses the TCP transport protocol to call the specified program. You must specify both a node (computer) name and a program name. If you do not specify a version, the program calls all versions.

/u <Node Program> [<Version>]

Uses the UDP transport protocol to call the specified program. You must specify both a node (computer) name and a program name. If you do not specify a version, the program calls all versions.

/?

Displays Help at the command prompt.
