NIS and no solution yet

Thanks Joseph,

it's good to know that someone has it working!  As I wrote earlier, I can
get to another machine, but only if NIS is disabled on the remote machine.
Others have said that they have it working fine with NIS 2004; I am going to
try to remove it from the NIS firewall list and try to 'get out' and
hopefully I'll get a prompt from Norton that will allow it to digest it.

For anyone else viewing these messages, look for similar listings around
this date.  There are some very helpful insights.

Thanks,
Elke
