nis server issue


i have setup NIS SERVER. when i try to connect from my another PC with the command service ypbind start. it search for NIS domain and server but it's FAILD.

I m using RHEL3 ES edition.

Here all configration steps which i have done.

after adding NISDOMAIN=NIS-HOME-NETWORK under /etc/sysconfig/network file. and also under /etc/yp.conf file i have setup 'ypserver option.

after that i have run this command.

[root@mail root]# /usr/lib/yp/ypinit -m

At this point, we have to construct a list of the hosts which will run NIS
servers. is in the list of NIS server hosts. Please continue to add
the names for the other hosts, one per line. When you are done with the
list, type a <control D>.
next host to add:
next host to add:
The current list of NIS servers looks like this:

Is this correct? [y/n: y] y
We need a few minutes to build the databases...
Building /var/yp/NIS-HOME-NETWORK/ypservers...
Running /var/yp/Makefile...
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/var/yp/NIS-HOME-NETWORK'
Updating passwd.byname...
Updating passwd.byuid...
Updating group.byname...

Updating hosts.byname...

Updating netid.byname...
Updating protocols.bynumber...
Updating protocols.byname...
Updating mail.aliases...
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/var/yp/NIS-HOME-NETWORK' has been set up as a NIS master server.

Now you can run ypinit -s on all slave server.
[root@mail root]#

Then i have started all require services like ypserv,portmap, is the ouput.

[root@mail root]# rpcinfo -p localhost
