Network Information Service (NIS)


This meta-package provides tools for setting up and maintaining a NIS domain. NIS, originally known as Yellow Pages (YP), is mostly used to let several machines in a network share the same account information, such as the password file.

This package depends on daemons, client and tools components which could be also used independently to provide services for multiple hosts.
