NAME
     yppoll -- ask version of NIS map from NIS server

SYNOPSIS
     yppoll [-T] [-h host] [-d domain] mapname

DESCRIPTION
     yppoll asks a NIS server process for the order number and which host is
     the master	server for mapname.

     The options are as	follows:

     -T	     Use TCP protocol instead of UDP for request if the	-h option is
	     present.

     -h	host
	     Ask the NIS server	process	running	on host	for information	about
	     mapname.  If host is not specified, the server polled is the de-
	     fault server returned by ypwhich(1).

     -d	domain
	     Use the NIS domain	domain instead of the default domain as	re-
	     turned by domainname(1).
