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
     Ypset 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.

     Ypset 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 de-
     bugging 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 re-
	     turned by domainname(1).
