I don't have a /etc/default/portmap, the /etc/init.d/portmap script
checks for this file existance, and then runs it. Looks like it could
be safely removed (or renamed).
looking at the manual for portmap...
bind portmap to address. If you specify 127.0.0.1 it will
the loopback interface only.
So it looks like /etc/default/portmap may be used to specify which

pkill portmap # To kill running portmap if started
ps -ef | grep portmap # To check if killed
/sbin/portmap & # To start portmapper without using the scripts
mount server:/blah /mnt # To check if okay - change to suit ofcourse.
