This package's NIS implementation is based on FreeBSD's YP and is a special port for glibc 2.x and libc versions 5.4.21 and later. This package only provides the NIS client programs. In order to use the clients, you'll need to already have an NIS server running on your network. An NIS server is provided in the ypserv package.
Install the yp-tools package if you need NIS client programs for machines on your network. You will also need to install the ypbind package on every machine running NIS client programs. If you need an NIS server, you'll need to install the ypserv package on one machine on the network.
This is version 2.6 of a collection of NIS client tools. See the file COPYING for copying restrictions. This package contains ypcat, ypmatch, ypset, ypwhich, yppasswd, domainname, nisdomainname and ypdomainname. It is a complete rewrite of the old yp-tools 1.4.x package. It fixes a lot of bugs and problems with the old version. This package should work with every Linux libc 5 and glibc 2, and more»
