(Posted to freebsd-isp on Tuesday, but got no responses) Feel my pain :)
We have just begun a migration to NIS (please keep the "NIS sucks", "Sendmail sucks", "FreeBSD sucks", "You suck", "I suck", etc posts to a dull roar.) In the last couple of days we have seen a lot of messages like the one below appearing in /var/log/messages: Oct 13 06:14:58 xxxxx ypserv: access to master.passwd.byname denied -- client 126.96.36.199:3458 not privileged This goes on for a number of minutes, and then fixes itself. Obviously, the problem is that the NIS lookup request is coming from a non-priveleged (> 1024) port, and ypserv won't honor it. What's not so obvious is why/how this is happening. I'm suspecting it's Sendmail, since the frequency of the message somewhat coincides with the rate of incoming mail on this box. But I can't seem to find any clues on the web or usenet confirming this. Has anyone seen this before, or know of a solution? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
