Well, I don't run NIS, so I'm not sure I'll be much more help.  I
imagine that by default ypbind is broadcasting to find a server (ayup,
just checked the manpage for it).  Are you seeing those broadcasts come
across the bridge (via tcpdump)?  If not, does the -m switch to ypbind
help at all?

If none of that helps, someone with more NIS experience will probably
need to step in to help.
