##Overview This is a module designed for controlling the Portmap daemon.

##Module Description This module installs and runs the Portmap daemon for use by NFS and others.


###What portmap affects The portmap module will install the appropriate packages for RedHat and Debian distributions. This typically includes either the rpcbind or portmap packages, depending on OS version. It also controls execution of the appropriate daemon services. These are typically either rpcbind or portmap, depending on OS version.

###Setup requirements This module requires the puppetlabs/stdlib module.

###Beginning with portmap Simply including this module will install and execute the portmap service on your host.

include portmap

##Usage By default, the module will install the appropriate packages and configure the daemon to start on boot. All user interaction is done at the top-level portmap module level. In other words, options are provided directly to the portmap class.

The package option is used to specify which version of the portmap package to install. This will typically be either installed (or present) or latest.

The service option is used to specify whether the portmap service should execute. This will typically be either running or stopped.

The enable option is used to specify whether the service should start at boot. The value will be either true or false.
