I also run NIS and torque, but without ANY problems.
Please try

#> netstat -l

and look at the ports. Torque usually uses ports around 15000 - if they 
are already taken, then you might get the above error.

#> lsof -i

will help you tracking down the responsible programs opening those ports.

You also might want to check /etc/nsswitch.conf (if your services are 
defined by NIS maps) and /etc/services to see if the torque ports are 
relocated to another range.
