NAME
     ypxfr -- get a NIS	map from NIS server

SYNOPSIS
     ypxfr [-cf] [-C tid prog ipadd port] [-d domain] [-h host]	[-s domain]
	   mapname

DESCRIPTION
     ypxfr is the utility in NIS that transfers	maps to	the local host.

     The options are as	follows:

     -c	     Don't send	a "Clear current map" to local ypserv process. Useful
	     if	ypserv isn't running locally to	avoid timeout message.

     -C	tid prog ipadd port
	     This option is only used by ypserv.  This is to open communica-
	     tion with yppush on another host.

     -d	domain
	     Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.

     -f	     Force map transfer, even if the master's version is older than
	     the local copy.

     -h	host
	     Get map from host instead of the maps master host.

     -s	domain
	     Specify a source domain other than	the target domain.
