From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
When using ypbind in broadcast mode, it will never find a server. When
an address is specified its finds a server instantly.

This broadcast configuration has been working for us for all past
redhat versions, and has now just stopped working with rehdat ENT 3.0

When doing a packet capture on a good machine (7.3,8.9) the udp
checksum comes out correct. On a bad 3.0 machine the checksum of the
packet is incorrect.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set /etc/yp.conf to broadcast
2. /etc/init.d/ypbind start

    

Expected Results:  server will not bind.
