YPSET(8)		FreeBSD	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).
