Hello,

I have a number of linux hosts that I would like to connect with NIS.

I got the ypserv program running fine on linux box 1, but when I try to login to linux box 2, the passwords do not work. As root, on box 2, I can however successfully run "ypcat passwd" and I see the password file from linux box 1 just fine. ypwhich returns the correct server name
from linux box 1, and domainname returns the same domainname, in case you wondered.

What am I missing here??

Thanks for any pointers...

I can think two reasons.

1. Is Running 'ypbind' on linux box 1?
2. Are resolv.conf and host.conf descripted correctly order?

I hope my opinion to be your solution.
