RPC: NT Server/UNIX client
Posted on 1997-08-14
I am implementing RPC with an NT server and a UNIX (DEC Alpha) client.
Easy enough to generate both a client and a server on a single platform. 'rpcgen' on UNIX and 'MIDL' on NT.
The problem is getting a client generated by 'rpcgen' and a server generated by 'MIDL' to communicate. The 'rpcgen' call seems to be the gating factor. On the NT side I specify the pipe, the server and information like that. On the UNIX side I specify nothing of this sort. It is information such as procedure number and program number. What are the significance of these things? How do they fit in with what I did on the NT side?
Can anyone help?
