DIAGNOSTICS

     rwall: RPC: Program not registered
             The rpc.rwalld(8) daemon has not been started on the remote host.

     rwall: RPC: Timed out
             A communication error occurred.  Either the network is exces-
             sively congested, or the rpc.rwalld(8) daemon has terminated on
             the remote host.

     rwall: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Timed out
             The remote host is not running the portmapper (see portmap(8) ),
             and cannot accomodate any RPC-based services.  The host may be
             down.
