Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83985
ypbind grabbin g cups port
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:59 EDT
Description of problem:
cups will not start up on various Red Hat Linux 7.3 clients with updates.
Looking through netstat -natp we are seeing ypbind consistently binding to port
631 which is what IPP uses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cups-1.1.14-15.2 [and backport of rawhide cups]
60% of 200 clients here are seeing it... have not figured out why 40% arent.
Here is the /etc/yp.conf with edits for security reasons (yyy|xxxx)
# /etc/yp.conf - ypbind configuration file
# Valid entries are
#domain NISDOMAIN server HOSTNAME
# Use server HOSTNAME for the domain NISDOMAIN.
#domain NISDOMAIN broadcast
# Use broadcast on the local net for domain NISDOMAIN
# Use server HOSTNAME for the local domain. The
# IP-address of server must be listed in /etc/hosts.
domain yyy server yyy.xxxx.gov
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 7.3
2. upgrade to latest updates
3. configure yp as above, and cups to browsepoll from specific machine
5. watch cups not be able to bind to port 631.
