fail to log in on NIS client


I am failing to log in on a NIS client server. I input the login name and takes long to bring password prompt. It then gives an error :Login timed out after 60 seconds. A boot message also appears : No NIS server found when it attempts to start ypbind.

I am stuck since I need to correct the NIS configuration on the server. How do I login then into the server.

Thanks
