I'm not finding any log file or the tcpip$nfs directory in sys$sysdevice. Is
there a way to enable logs ?
It seems that i was missing the proxy entry for the user "nobody" & "root".
Also in my setup here, the authentication mechanism is pretty complex.
username/passwd is from the NIS server, nfs authentication (thru hclnfsd) is
done on a different server and i'm trying to nfs mount the exported drives on a
NT box, which has its own domain server for authentication. This all, leaving
apart the VMS box completely :-)
I'm now able to do the client side nfs_mount, but still have some teething
trouble with security/authentication (Thanks to one excellent article from our
Digital's (now Compaq's) archive sent by "Martin Vorlaender"
