NAME
     ypset -- tell ypbind(8) which YP server process to use

SYNOPSIS
     ypset [-h host] [-d domain] server

DESCRIPTION
     Ypset tells the ypbind(8) process on the current machine which YP server process to communi-
     cate with.  If server is down or is not running a YP server process, it is not discovered
     until a YP client process attempts to access a YP map, at which time ypbind(8) tests the
     binding and takes appropriate action.

     Ypset is most useful for binding a YP client that is not on the same broadcast network as
     the closest YP server, but can also be used for debugging a local network's YP configura-
     tion, testing specific YP client programs, or binding to a specific server when there are
     many servers on the local network supplying YP maps.

     The options are as follows:

     -h host
	     Set the YP binding on host instead of the local machine.

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