1 Well, it seems that ypbind from portage does not want to play nicely with my
2 NIS server (which is a debian box) they are both ypbind-mt 1.7. I have portmap
3 running, and can ypcat all the maps, and can even ping my hosts based on NIS
4 hostmaps, but authentication is the problem. I believe it's got something to
5 do with pam. I've made my /etc/pam.d/login look identical to the one on my
6 debian boxes to no avail. I'm sure I've not overlooked anything, I got the +
7 entries in (double checked them to make sure they were correct and everything.
9 here's my pam.d/login
11 auth requisite
12 auth required
13 auth required
14 auth required nullok
15 account required
16 session required
17 session optional
18 session optional
19 session optional standard noenv
20 password required nullok obscure min=4 max=8 md5
22 I've double checked to make sure allthat stuff was there. I'm using shadow and
23 MD5 passwords on the NIS server. Has anyone been able to make this work?
