The ypbind-mt package contains a multithreaded ypbind daemon for Linux. It uses threads for better response and supports the ypbind protocols version 1, 2 and 3. A list of features from this new implementation:

  • Supports protocol v3 and IPv6.
  • Supports bindings to multiple domains.
  • Supports /var/yp/binding/* file for Linux libc 4/5 and glibc 2.x.
  • Supports a list of known secure NIS server (/etc/yp.conf)

ypbind-mt needs on Linux a TI-RPC library and libnsl.
