This configuration parameter specifies a list of one or more subnets from which the daemon will accept NIS requests. You use this parameter to restrict access to the Centrify Network Information Service by IP address. NIS requests that do not come from the IP addresses specified in this configuration parameters are refused by the asnisd daemon.

If this parameter is not defined in the configuration file, only local NIS client requests are accepted by the asnisd process.
