Description Phil Anderson 2003-01-10 04:49:47 UTC
Description of problem:
ypbind doesn't bind on any of our clients when using the default firewall
created with lokkit.  ypbind should probably open a port on the firewall when
starting up, just as ntpd does.  ypbind starts when the firewall is off, but
fails to bind when the firewall is on.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up firewall with lokkit
2.service ypbind start
Actual Results:  Fails to bind to NIS server

Expected Results:  Should bind to a server
