YPSET(8)                  BSD System Manager's Manual                 YPSET(8)

NAME
     ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which YP server process to use

SYNOPSIS
     ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server

DESCRIPTION
     The ypset utility tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine
     which YP server process to communicate with.  If server is down or is not
     running a YP server process, it is not discovered until a YP client
     process attempts to access a YP map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the
     binding and takes appropriate action.

     The ypset utility is most useful for binding a YP client that is not on
     the same broadcast network as the closest YP server, but can also be used
     for debugging a local network's YP configuration, testing specific YP
     client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are many
     servers on the local network supplying YP maps.

     The options are as follows:

     -h host
             Set the YP binding on host instead of the local machine.

     -d domain
             Use the YP domain domain instead of the default domain as
             returned by domainname(1).
