I can give you a hand. I've done this recently. If you can give some more
details with respect to where you had problems, it would be a lot easier
I've set the ypserv.securenets with my local subnet.
The server is able to start, and "ypinit -m" runs fine.
The rpcinfo test works also.
But ypbind, run locally or on clients, is unable to bind to the server.
