Thanks for the help so far in debugging my NFS problems. Here's what I know so
Hummingbird is using port 2049 for mounting drives. I am currently using the
-n option for mountd. Thanks to who suggested that. Is there a more standard
port to use? (i.e. <1024)
Now I find my problem is with the Authenticator - HCLNFSD. It isn't matching
passwords correctly. There close like Xlk1hfcs vs. Xlk23kqs for example. I
re-compiled HCLNFSD but to no avail. I also tried RCP.PCNFSD. This seemed to
have the same problem. Any ideas?
