Re: RPC Question

What's rpc.ttdbserver ..
Quote
The rpc.ttdbserver is the ToolTalk database server (used by the ToolTalk messaging system that performs filename mapping. It essentially replaces the BMS messaging system in VUE. ToolTalk is a SunSoft product for network data interchange. In 1992,several companies formed a consortium to develop what has become the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), which uses ToolTalk as a messaging system. Both Solaris 2.6 and HP-UX 10.20 support CDE; therefore, they also support the newer version of ToolTalk (1.1).

Since CDE on HP-UX 10.20 uses a form of socket communication, it does not REQUIRE that the ToolTalk daemon be running for proper functionality. However, it is not recommended that the rpc.ttdbserver daemon be disabled because some third party software may rely on it (especially if ported from a Sun OS).

This doc tells you how to deal with it.

For our site, we disable it by commenting out the rpc.ttdbserver entry in /etc/inetd.conf and re-reading the file.
