(NIS server = daddybear)
I'm just wondering about NIS config from the client side. Do I need to set /etc/nsswitch.conf to NIS for everything or what? Its just that it seems to be working, however, during bootime, it hangs on syslog for a few minutes then continues fine without errors.
Then I logon, no problems, but after approx 10 minutes strange things start happenning, I receive errors such as : clnt_request refused connect from server, permission denied. (this is not the exact error message as I'm not at home now)
So I ssh to daddybear, these errors come up when opening every single shell! But I do get to login, then on daddybear I re-run ypserv, and the problem goes away for another few minutes. daddybear logins are fine locally and it uses NIS client aswell.
What exactly should I setup the clients nsswitch to? Does it even need to be changed and will I still have full NIS authentification without it?
Regarding the export of /home on daddybear, I have given one machine access rights of (rw), but I get permission denied from daddybear! I can mount other NFS partitions on daddybear (rw) no problems so I dunno why.
Can anyone send me their /etc/exports with an example of /home please? I'm sure lots of people have this setup.
I've decided to purge my system of SMB/CIFS due to samba not being a good idea on a firewall, or so I've read. But I'm looking for a free 'doze NFS client as the wife wan'ts access to her MP3's. I've found plenty of time limited demo's/shareware but I would prefer a freeware/opensource version.
