I try to build a NIS-Server with SuSE 8.2
Everything works fine except changing my password from a client with
(yp)passwd. I always get the answer:
yppasswdd not running on NIS master
lsof -i on the server shows me the entry:
rpc.yppas 5292 root 4u IPv4 112120 UDP *:805
rpcinfo -p server gives the line
100009 1 udp 805 yppasswdd
But if I try (yp)passwd on the client and sniff the net with tcpdump
there is no communication between my client and the NIS-server on port 805.
I searched all the conf-files for NIS but didn't find anything.
I also asked myself, how yppasswd (or ypbind) knows which port to use,
because the prot of rpc.yppasswdd changes everytime the daemon (or
ypserv) is restartet.
Every hints are welcome
(yes, I did a RTFM)
