I installed the new ypbind-3.0 and it works fine. While I was at it,
I did a test and set 
   #define PING_INTERVAL   86400
in ypbind.h.

This stops it from pinging the server every 10 seconds, but it turns
out that the nis server sends _me_ something every minute (or 6; I've
forgotten now). The nis server is on a Solaris 2.4 host.

Does anyone know offhand why it does this, or if it can be turned off?
(It causes the isdn line to stay active unnecessarilly).
