I changed the xinet.d file to portmap even though it said rpc.portmap because there
wasn't one located anywhere within this box. I then ran the two 'test' cases and
installed the portmap and xinetd. but when I tried to telnet in from outside my
machine, this is the response I received:
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
thanks for the help, we'll get it soon enough :)
