Palisetty;

We have suggested several times that you need to post more specific questions. In this case, you should tell us WHAT websites you looked at, and exactly what you did not understand.

Consider this a "pre-warning". I think we all want to see you succeed, but you have to start asking questions that don't just treat us as a free homework service.

Pixellany,
I have gone through the following websites but could not understand whats the exact usage of ypbind, What does it do.

http://linux.about.com/cs/linux101/g/ypbind.htm

I only know that it is used in client side.

If it is a homework, i would have copied it diectly. Why will i ask it here and getting scoldings from you. Its not a homework at all. I am preparing for exams which are due next month. Please don't say that whatever i ask is homework.
Thanks.

I am not going to quibble with you about what the definition of "homework" is. The fact is that you have a pattern of asking questions without giving us the benefit of what you have already researched. As someone has already pointed out to you, for the purposes of the LQ rules, there is no difference between "homework" and preparing for an exam.

This said, we need to be getting to the substance of your question:

I did a Google search on "ypbind". Right after the link provided is this one:
http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/UserInfo/Re...ds6/ypbind.htm

I think this is a pretty clear explanation--please tell us if this answers your question.

Pixellany,
the first line is enough for me. That line explains whats the purpose of ypbind.

ypbind- This daemon enables NIS client to connect to NIS server.


Thank you sooooooooooo much.

For the record:
I think you put more effort into posting here than was required to look at that one Google search and get your answer.

I really hope next time you will come in with questions that state:
1. What information you already have--including the sites you have looked at.
2. The specific points you do not understand
