NAME
     yppoll -- ask version of NIS map from NIS server

SYNOPSIS
     yppoll [-T] [-h host] [-d domain] mapname

DESCRIPTION
     yppoll asks a NIS server process for the order number and which host is the master server
     for mapname.

     The options are as follows:

     -T      Use TCP protocol instead of UDP for request if the -h option is present.

     -h host
	     Ask the NIS server process running on host for information about mapname.	If host
	     is not specified, the server polled is the default server returned by ypwhich(1).

     -d domain
	     Use the NIS domain domain instead of the default domain as returned by
	     domainname(1).
