I am trying to setup basic NIS server and client on Redhat Linux 6.

I don't see portmap service in RHEL 6?

I need steps on how to install NIS on RHEL6.

NIS server looks fine. but when i tried to test the client. I am seeing the following error on client side.

[root@nisclient /]# ypwhich
ypwhich: Can't communicate with ypbind

You may also want to check to see if you have Firewall enabled which will likely stop the communication between the NIS client and the NIS server

#service iptables stop
or you can do..
# iptables -F
#service iptables save

I had to turn on the NetworkManager and the interface should be used by NetworkManager to bind the service.

weird.

Portmap is now rpcbind in most "6" RH upstreams.

service rpcbind restart
