Subject: NFS - RPC client credentials too weak

I'm trying to NFS mount from a NetBSD-current server to an Ultrix 4.2a 
client.  The Ultrix NFS implementation is ancient and crufty.

Mounting by hand works OK; sometimes I get an RPC authentication error, 
but the directory is still mounted.  When I try to mount the file 
system with automount, the mount fails and automount logs:

Jul 12 14:38:58 5836 automount: 
raminsh:/pub/ftp server not responding: RPC: Authentication error; why 
= Client credential too weak

Is there anything I can do, either to the NetBSD machine to get it to 
lighten up about RPC credentials, or to the Ultrix box to get it to 
authorize properly?
