YPPASSWD(3R)                                                      YPPASSWD(3R)



NAME
       yppasswd - update user password in NIS

PROTOCOL
       /usr/include/rpcsvc/yppasswd.x

DESCRIPTION
       The  yppasswd()  protocol  is used to change a user's password entry in
       the Network Information Service (NIS) password database.

       If oldpass is indeed the old user password, this routine  replaces  the
       password entry with newpw.  It returns 0 if successful.

PROGRAMMING
       #include <&lt;rpcsvc/yppasswd.h>&gt;
       yppasswd(oldpass, newpw)
            char *oldpass
            struct passwd *newpw;

SEE ALSO
       yppasswd(1), yppasswdd(8C)

NOTES
       The  Network Information Service (NIS) was formerly known as Sun Yellow
       Pages (YP).  The functionality of the two remains the  same;  only  the
       name  has  changed.  The name Yellow Pages is a registered trademark in
       the United Kingdom of British Telecommunications plc, and  may  not  be
       used without permission.
