NAME
       /etc/yp.conf - NIS binding configuration file

DESCRIPTION
       The file /etc/yp.conf is read from ypbind(8) at startup or when receiv-
       ing signal SIGHUP.  The entries	are  used  for	the  initial  binding.
       Valid entries are

       domain nisdomain server hostname
	      Use  server  hostname  for the domain nisdomain.	You could have
	      more then one entry of this type for a single domain.

       domain nisdomain broadcast
	      Use broadcast on the local net for domain nisdomain.

       domain nisdomain slp
	      Query the local running SLP server for hosts running ypserv  and
	      distributing  nisdomain.	 This  option  is  only	 available, if
	      ypbind was compiled with SLP support.

       ypserver hostname
	      Use server server for the local domain.

       broadcast
	      If no other server is given or all of them  are  not  reachable,
	      try a broadcast call for the default domain to find a server.

       If  for	a  specific  domain  the broadcast option and fixed server are
       given, ypbind-mt tries at first the given servers before	 falling  back
       to broadcasting for a running server.
