How to setup a solaris NIS client while with a Linux NIS server?

Hi, all,

I've setup a Linux NIS server, and everyone can login the Linux NIS clients with NIS authentication.
But while I finished building the Solaris NIS client, I could see the users informations by typing "ypcat passwd". But everyone just couldn't login the Solaris NIS client.

I built the Solaris client(Solaris8.0 Sparc) following the steps below:
1. #cp /etc/nsswitch.nis /etc/nsswitch.conf
2.#vi /etc/hosts
I added the entry for the Linux NIS server.
4.#domainname > /etc/defaultdomain
5.#ypinit -c
7.Testing the nis client
# rpcinfo -u localhost ypbind
program 100007 version 1 ready and waiting
program 100007 version 2 ready and waiting
program 100007 version 3 ready and waiting

# ypcat passwd

What's the matter?
Thanks a lot!
