Hi to all,

I setup NIS server and client can connect  through SSH but can’t connect to it via GUI.  The problem might be to do with mounting home directory on client machine, I did manual mounting but still client can’t access it through GUI.  I have seen some article saying automount (Autofs) need to be configured. Unfortunately I have a problem with that it doesn’t work.  Question is
- does it has to be automount?
- if not then user can’t login to GUI with manual mounting of home directory?


I am using RHEL5

I managed to solve it by setting up autofs and then setup NIS, but thanks for the link
