Firstly, Thanks William for your fast answer. And thanks for solving my
problem!!! Actually in my installation there was no portmap file in /etc/default
 directory, so I thought I'd run dpkg-reconfigure portmap if there's something
wrong with my installation of portmap. Well, dpkg-reconfigure asks if the
portmapper should be bound to localhost and I had this setting as 'yes' (so the
same thing but not in /etc/default). Anyhow, I changed that, and now it's just

Thanks alot!
