There are two options:
Run one of the NIS+ servers in YP compat mode, then
run ypbind on the SunOS client.
NOTE: the SunOS machine can only be a client (not a slave server)

Run NIS+ natively on the SunOS machine:
You need to find the NISPLUS.4.1 tar file on the 2.5 cd.

Thanks again!

My original question:
> I'm trying to integrate a SunOS 4.x machine into an NIS+ network.
> Is this possible? Is there any support for NIS+ in SunOS?
> Should I just run one of the NIS+ servers in YP compat mode?
