|Summary : The NIS (Network Information Service) server.
|Description : |
The Network Information Service (NIS) is a system which provides
network information (login names, passwords, home directories, group
information) to all of the machines on a network. NIS can enable
users to login 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 (YP).
This package provides the NIS server, which will need to be running on
your network. NIS clients do not need to be running the server.
Install ypserv if you need an NIS server for your network. You\'ll
also need to install the yp-tools and ypbind packages onto any NIS
