There is not a really great alternative to NIS that I am aware of. The only real thing is to make sure that you are careful with what clients may access the central NIS server.

Anybody, A while back I seem to remember someone saying NIS is "evil." Since my classroom network is now stable enough to begin to expand from the present 7 machines, I want to centralize access and passwords. What alternatives are there to NIS, or should I just go with it? Thanks, Dave Prentice
