Description of problem:
After an installation with the safest-firewall setting NIS can not bind to a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installation
2. configure NIS
3. select safest firewall-configuration
Actual Results: NIS can not bind to a server, while when the firewall is down
(/etc/init.d/iptables stop) it can bind to the server
Expected Results: NIS can bind to a server
maybe it's as designed, but then tell something about it in the help-files
I've been successful at this before. Make sure that you specify an NIS
server (don't use broadcast) and try accepting "--state ESTABLISHED" packets.
