Ypbind needs to be running on the client "only" not the NIS server. You
can configure ypbind to start with Linuxconf ;off the top of my head I
think the option is called something like "Services Configuraton" But
the most common method is to start the service from the prompt.
Once you get ypbind started you need to create s symbolic link under
rc.3 so that it can start at boot.
Even with all of that, your NIS clients still will not be able to log in
remotely. The next step you have to perform is to export the /home
directory from the NIS server and then mount them on "all" the client
workstations. Once you mount them, open and edit the fstab file by
entering the /home directory mount settings so that the mounts will
automatically boot at start up. These things will allow NIS users to log
on to any workstation.
