NIS Question


Hi

I have succesfully configured my linux box as an NIS server. and when i issuse the 'ypcat passwd' command in one of my linux client it shows the passwd file of the NIS server, but i am not able to login using the user name of the nis server.
what may be the problem?

From your last post, you say it's already mounted on the client system and then ask how to get it mounted on the client system. Is it not mounted or do you not want it mounted?
