See the file COPYING for copying conditions. ypbind-mt is a complete new implementation of a NIS binding daemon for Linux. It has the following features: * Supports ypbind protocol V1, V2, V3. * IPv6 support (needs TI-RPC and libnsl! Else use old 1.x version). * Uses threads for better response. * Supports multiple domain bindings. * Supports a list of known secure NIS server (/etc/yp.conf) The following features against version 1.x were dropped: * Listen to DBUS/NetworkManager. * Use SLP to find a running ypserv WARNING: -------- If the system's DNS names are used in the NIS configuration, this hostnames needs to be resolveable without NIS before NIS is called. If NIS is used, the NIS clients need to query the NIS server to resolve the hostname of the NIS server, this is a classical infinite recursion and will only lead to a crash of the system. This worked with the old protocoll, since it did only allow one IPv4 address, so ypbind did use DNS (independent of what is configured in /etc/nsswitch.conf) to resolve the name and store the first IPv4 address.
