ypbind(8) which YP server process to use
process on the current
machine which YP server process to communicate with. If
is down or is not running a YP server
process, it is not discovered until a YP client process attempts to access a
YP map, at which time ypbind(8)
tests the binding and takes appropriate action.
is most useful for binding a YP client that
is not on the same broadcast network as the closest YP server, but can also be
used for debugging a local network's YP configuration, testing specific YP
client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are many servers
on the local network supplying YP maps.
The options are as follows:
- Use the YP domain domain
instead of the default domain as returned by
- Set the YP binding on host
instead of the local machine.
