Not sure if this might help or apply but do you have the domain's listed in your /etc/hosts file ? If your trying to connect to any computer by name and not IP address, you'll want to add those hosts to that file.

So your certain all the necessary services are running on the Server end ? Can this machine see the server at all ? It seems to fail when attempting to bind to the server in this case.

Make sure you properly configure your /etc/nsswitch.conf => see the man page for nsswitch.conf. I recently connected my RH7.3 client to a NIS domain running on Slackware 8.1. The nsswitch file on Redhat was trying to use 'nisplus', so I changed these entries to use nis. Reply if you want me to post example..
