    Trying to Compile RPC Client

    I am tring, for the first time, to compile an rpc client but I am getting a vague compile error. The rpc.x code compiles fine, the client.c code compiles, and the rpc_clnt.c compiles but when I run the final command to link and create a binary I get the error.

    Undefined first referenced
    symbol in file
    xdr_void Rpc_clnt.o

    The exact command I am using is

    cc -o Client Client.o Rpc_clnt.o

    Any ideas on what the problem could be?

    Which RPC library are you using? Are you linking the appropriate library files?

    Try adding -lnsl to the end of the command line when linking.
