Hmm, the server is OK, and the server can see RPC on the client

That is the client trying to register the ypbind service with
the local portmapper. It fails, and so so rpcinfo -p. Because
it fails with 'Operation not permitted' I'd say there's a
95% chance there's an ipchains or iptables rule installed
that blocks something
Try 'iptables -L' and/or 'ipchains -L'

Possible. It is a local configuration problem, and it doesn't
have anything to do with NIS, it just shows up when trying to use NIS
