Anybody work with Ubuntu much that can explain this error:

W: Failed to fetch xxxx-connect(111 Connection refused)

There's more but I can't post the address due to my status

I am trying to add some applications for the first time and I keep getting this error with any app I try to install. Thanks in advance for your help!

It sounds like your app is trying to connect to port 111. Port 111 is this:

Quote:
Sun's RPC Portmapper. Used to map non-registered rpc service ports on most Unix systems (Irix uses port 1). Security Concerns: Provides rpc port map w/o auth. - Has no filtering or logging. - Attacker rpcinfo probes quickly find your Unix hosts. - Solaris hosts open a second port above 32770. Attackers will scan for and use it, knowing net devices won't watch & log this like 111 traffic. Enhance your portmapper to get ACL filtering and logging: BSD: Install \portmap wrapper\. - System V & Solaris: Install Venema's \rpcbind replacement\. Both require libwrap.a from a compiled TCP Wrapper program. Shut down portmapper on any hosts not requiring rpc's. Ensure blocked at all net perimeters.


What application are you trying to install?

Thanks for the info - I had to put this project down for something else and forgot about it - can't remember what I was trying to do, will backtrack and get back to you if necessary, thanks again
