Dear Linux Networking people,
I have been trying to install NIS on a simple network I run that
has a server (hostname: www, ip: 192.168.0.1) and a workstation (hostname:
daryl, ip 192.168.0.2). It seems that although I have been through the howt
o many times, I still can't get ypbind to find the host. It keeps sayi
ng the following:
parsing config file
Trying entry: domain nisdarylbeattie server www
parsed domain 'nisdarylbeattie' server 'www'
add_server() domain: nisdarylbeattie, host: www, slot: 0
Trying entry: domain nisdarylbeattie broadcast
parsed domain 'nisdarylbeattie' broadcast
add_server() domain: nisdarylbeattie, broadcast
Trying entry: ypserver www
parsed ypserver www
add_server() domain: nisdarylbeattie, host: www, slot: 1
[Welcome to ypbind-mt, version 1.11]
ping host 'www', domain 'nisdarylbeattie'
host 'www' doesn't answer.
Oh, the nis domain is called "nisdarylbeattie", as can be seen above.
I think I have set everything up correctly... I've been over the se
ttings many times and tried many things, but no matter what it always seem
s that it can't connect to host www (I have renamed it, changed firewall se
So, if there is anybody out there that can shed some light
on my problem(s), I would GREALY appreciate it. I will provide any se
ttings information that is required upon request (so as not to flood this m
essage with garbage).
I run RH7.3 on the workstation, and RH8.0 on the server. Both have
ypserv version 2.5 and ypbind-mt 1.11. The server is running an AMD Athlo
n, and the other a AMD Duron. I also have glibc 2.2.something.
On the server, my /var/yp/securenets file looks like this:
My ypserv.conf is pretty standard (dns: no) and rpcinfo -u www ypserv
program 100004 version 1 ready and waiting
program 100004 version 2 ready and waiting
On the client, when I run ypwhich -m, I get:
Can't get map list for domain nisdarylbeattie. Reason: Can't bind to server
which serves this domain
Does anybody have any ideas?
Thanks for your help.
