I have just compiled and installed NIS+ client (1.4.1) on a new Linux
Red Hat 7.1. Our server is a Solaris 7 Sparc server.
There seem to be a problem with the portmap when I start the nis+
client. Here are the network packets exchanged between the client and
the server :
client.domain -> server.domain PORTMAP C GETPORT prog=100300 (NIS+) vers=3 proto=TCP (retransmit)
server.domain -> client.domain PORTMAP R GETPORT port=32772
client.domain -> server.domain ICMP Destination unreachable (Bad port)
The commands executed on the client is as usual :
% domainname domain
% nisinit -c -H server.domain
And no I did not forget to put credentials for the client on the
server. So I think everything is right, except that the PORTMAP goes
crazy when it receives the answer from the server...
HELP ME PLEASE, or give me a pointer where to find the right
information. Does RedHat have support for this kind of problem?
Thanks in advance,
