Please check /etc/default/portmap; I had a nasty surprise there once
when someone dropped OPTIONS="-i localhost" there, which binds it to
lo or to or otherwise makes it refuse connections from
elsewhere, preventing all remote connections. By and large various
defaults that break my setup show up in /etc/default/, which I suppose
saves me the trouble of looking in still odder places, but still, ugh.
