libtirpc should avoid ports listed in /etc/bindresvport.blacklist

Bug #1374024 reported by ThorstenK
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
libtirpc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This would prevent rpcbind from occupying some reserved ports (eg. UDP:631 usually used by CUPS ).

A first patch based on eglibc`s implementation of bindresvport has been attached. It can be applied on libtirpc-0.2.2 (used in precise - libtirpc_0.2.2-5.debian / trusty - libtirpc_0.2.2-5ubuntu2 ).

Kind regards,
