ypbind(8) which YP server process to use
ypset tells the
ypbind(8) process on the current machine which YP server process to
communicate with. If server 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.
ypset 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 domainname(1).
- Set the YP binding on host instead of the local machine.
domainname(1), ypcat(1), ypmatch(1), ypwhich(1), yp(8), ypbind(8), yppoll(8)
