Hi Dave,

I think you are correct, the "invalid source port" is indeed unrelated.

# /etc/init.d/ypbind start
SIOCADDRT: File exists
Starting NIS service:                                      [  OK  ]
Binding NIS service: ...............                       [  OK  ]

# ypcat passwd
No such map passwd.byname. Reason: Can't bind to server which serves this domain

The only new entry in /var/log/messages is:

Dec  9 11:16:26 hostname ypbind: NIS domain: xxxedout, NIS server:

That's from the startup, indicates normal start. What is output from

# /etc/init.d/ypbind status

after the ypcat fails? Is rpcbind running (/etc/init.d/rpcbind status)?

I am running fc9, but I doubt this has changed.

Also check the logs on the server side for any unusual entry mentioning this problem client.
