The Portmap protocol is part of the ["ONC-RPC"] protocol family.

XXX - add a brief PROTO description here


XXX - add a brief description of Portmap history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).


The Portmap dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Ethereal features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how Portmap is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of Portmap display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/p/portmap.html display filter reference]

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter the Portmap protocol while capturing. However, as the port number used over ["TCP"] and ["UDP"] is well known (see above), you can filter on that one.
