NIS client login "cannot find user name for user ID"
I have recently created an NIS Server on Redhat ES 4 and I have two NIS clients both running Redhat 9. When an NIS user logs into either of the NIS clients, they receive the message id: cannot find name for user ID. I was also receiving thie error for the group ID but remedied this by adding an entry in the local clients group file. I have checked the permission on the passwd.byname and passwd.byuid and all are global read. Any ideas? Everything else seems to be working fine.
Additionally, I see the following in the NIS server syslog:
ypserv: refused connect from 192.168.0.19:32771 to procedure ypproc_match (server,passwd.byuid;-1)
ypserv: refused connect from 192.168.0.19:32771 to procedure ypproc_match (server,passwd.byname;-1)
The above IP is for the NIS client I am logging into.
