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.
