I personally disable portmap and all RPC services on my servers. Even NFS is 
now at v4 and uses TCP and well-known-ports, not the portmapper.

I have no issues with QMT working in that environment.


There are a HOST of other services that come in a startup CentOS 6 or CentOS 7 
install – I ALWAYS inventory my new builds to remove unneeded and unwanted 


Best Regard,

Right, but if Toaster doesn't really use it and I don't use NFS or anything 
rpcbind is need for, it's an unnecessary daemon I would uninstall.

you can use firewalld to block it by default it should not be open.

Hi everyone,

I received a security alert about Portmap service enabled on my server, I 
checked the daemon rpcbind was installed by Toaster, is it needed?
I am thinking to get rid of it.
