I have the firewall and security turned off all the way back from the install on the client and the server. If I go to the Server Configuration GUI and chedck the "yp" services I see that yppasswdd, ypserv, ypxfrd are all running but ypbind is stopped. I have these services set to be started in runlevels 3, 4, and 5.
I use the GUI to start ypbind on the NIS server. It replys ypbind has started but the configuration file shows ypbind is stopped.
The system log viewer shows the following:
ypbind: NIS server for domain xxx.yyy.com is not responding.
Any suggestions as to what I need to do?
