ypserv Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies ypserv-4.2.tar.xz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

This a YP (NIS version 2) Server for Linux, but it also runs under
other OS like SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 2.x, AIX, HP-UX, IRIS, Ultrix
and others.

This is NOT an NIS+ (NIS version 3) Server !

The primary development site for ypserv is:

1024 Byte limit in NIS protocol:
The NIS protocol has one important limit: keys and data are limited
to 1024 bytes. Today most implementations (especially glibc and this
ypserv implementation) can handle longer keys and data. But this must
not be the case for every implementation, so be careful if you use
entries which are longer.
