NAME
     ypxfr -- get a NIS map from NIS server

SYNOPSIS
     ypxfr [-cf] [-C tid prog ipadd port] [-d domain] [-h host] [-s domain] mapname

DESCRIPTION
     ypxfr is the utility in NIS that transfers maps to the local host.

     The options are as follows:

     -c      Don't send a "Clear current map" to local ypserv process. Useful if ypserv isn't
	     running locally to avoid timeout message.

     -C tid prog ipadd port
	     This option is only used by ypserv.  This is to open communication with yppush on
	     another host.

     -d domain
	     Don't use default domain, use the specified domain.

     -f      Force map transfer, even if the master's version is older than the local copy.

     -h host
	     Get map from host instead of the maps master host.

     -s domain
	     Specify a source domain other than the target domain.
