NIS+ Programming Guide

This chapter presents the fundamental principles of the NIS+ (pronounced “niss-plus”) applications programming interface and a detailed sample program. The NIS+ API is for programmers who need to build applications for Solaris networks. It provides the essential features for supporting enterprise-wide applications.

This chapter covers the following topics:

The NIS+ network name service addresses the requirements of client/server networks ranging in size from 10 clients supported by a few servers on a local area network to 10,000 multi-vendor clients supported by 20 to 100 specialized servers located in sites throughout the world and connected by several public networks.
