I have portmap, but not rpcbind. Would that explain why that port is open? I
seem to have nothing left of rpcbind and its configuration/data files etc.
The other three are open fpr identifiable (by me) reasons. But why is that
rpcbind one still open? The computer has been completely shutdown between
wehn I removed rpcbind and now.
