WARNIG ! portmapper on server is not responding

I unistall the NIC LAN by NETCONFIG and the EFS media but the problem continues.

RE: portmapper on server is not responding

Check the contents of /etc/hosts and /etc/rc2.d/S85tcp against the outpout of the ifconfig -a command.

Hope This Helps, PH.
