- Subject: NIS/yp ported?
- Connect(): No such file or directory
I'm just curious - I have a function that I use on Unix to do basically
a ypcat passwd | grep -i $@. It's very useful in looking up users
especially since ore and more corporations use anonymous numbers or IDs
to represent people. But I have to log into the Unix system to do it.
I was wondering if there was a cygwin port of NIS or YP so that I could
do this ypcat from within Cygwin.
