1. Introduction

   This document specifies the binding protocols used in conjunction
   with ONC RPC Version 2.  As a prerequisite, the reader is expected to
   be familiar with [1] and [2] which describe the ONC RPC Version 2 and
   XDR (eXternal Data Representation) protocols.

   An RPC service is identified by its RPC program number, version
   number, and the transport address where it may be reached.  The
   transport address, in turn, consists of a network address and a
   transport selector.  In the case of a service available over TCP/IP
   or UDP/IP, the network address will be an IP address, and the
   transport selector will be a TCP or UDP port number.
