Name        : ypbind
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 1.35
Release     : 5.fc17
URL         : http://www.linux-nis.org/nis/ypbind-mt/index.html
Summary     : The NIS daemon which binds NIS clients to an NIS domain
Description :
The Network Information Service (NIS) is a system that provides
network information (login names, passwords, home directories, group
information) to all of the machines on a network. NIS can allow users
to log in on any machine on the network, as long as the machine has
the NIS client programs running and the user's password is recorded in
the NIS passwd database. NIS was formerly known as Sun Yellow Pages

This package provides the ypbind daemon. The ypbind daemon binds NIS
clients to an NIS domain. Ypbind must be running on any machines
running NIS client programs.

Install the ypbind package on any machines running NIS client programs
(included in the yp-tools package). If you need an NIS server, you
also need to install the ypserv package to a machine on your network.

Update Information:

This is an update that fixes issues with connection to localhost NIS server when no external connection is available.
