I know Tektronics sells a product called WinDD NIS that implements the
NIS service on a windows NT box.

I know nothing beyond it's existance.

There's also a free NIS package called NISGina that you might be able to
use. It replaces the original NT login with a NIS-authenticated one, and
it also automagically creates NT users on the NT box as needed, which means
that as long as a user has a unix-account, they'll be able to log on to
the NT boxes as well. You can also do some setups regarding who should have
Administrator privileges, etc. in NT.
The package is a bit "hackish", though, but if your main server is an SCO box,
it might suit your needs.
The software and some (rather poor..) documentation can be found on:

I have Solstice Network Client. It may exchange authorization to NIS or NIS+.

1. Networking RH5.2 <<<------------------->>> NT4 How???

Fred,

Unless you have a telnet server/daemon installed on your NT machine(it
doesn't come with one) you won't be able to telnet to it from linux or
anywhere else for that matter.
