Chapter 16. Using NFS and NIS in Linux a... > Setting up an NIS Client on Linux

16.5. Setting up an NIS Client on Linux

Unlike the NIS server, most Linux distributions come with an NIS client. If it is not included, go to ftp://ftp.kernel. org/pub/linux/utils/net/NIS and download the following files: yp-tools-2.2.tar.gz, ypbind-mt-1.4. tar.gz, ypbind-3.3.tar.gz, and ypbind-3.3-glibc5.diff.gz. You will also need to go to ftp://uni-paderborn.de/linux/local/yp and download yp-clients-2.2.tar.gz. Then, compile and install the programs.

Of course, you can always go to http://rpmfind/linux/RPM and find the latest version of nis-client if you don't feel like compiling the program.
