Specify allowed client machines for NIS daemon

Specify a list of one or more subnets from which the daemon will accept NIS requests.

Enable this group policy to restrict access to the Centrify DirectControl Network Information Service by IP address. NIS requests that do not come from the IP addresses specified in this group policy are refused by the adnisd daemon.

The value must include both the specific IP address or subnet and the subnet mask, separated by a forward slash. For example:
