There is a much more interesting page that was only announce on
I tried this and it first seemed to work nicely:
- niscat etc worked
- I could login to this nis+-Linux-Client
But at this I and somebody got problems with the nisplus server.
Thorsten couldn't reproduce this problem.
I haven't tried it since then and this machine has moved into a freebsd
controlled by my collegue.
I think it doesn't make much sense to play with the client only stuff.
