Sorry, this seems to be a problem with linux. The problem always
happens when I reboot my laptop and did not login before I try to ping
my linux-laptop from the HURD. I can reproduce that. Strange. When I
logout and there are no more user logged in, it works;-)

I can reproduce that. The first message is Trying 192.168.1.3... Then
the computer needs a minute or so and then I get the message Escape
Character is '^]'. And after another 5 minutes or so I get a password
prompt. (The user-names are the same on both systems). Strange, how
can I check, what goes wrong here? I booted linux on my HURD-box and
when I connect from linux to linux all runs normal

How can I set that up? I tried it with settrans /directory /hurd/nfs
192.168.1.2 and when I cd to /directory I only get the message

O.K., I just did it the right way, I only wondered why it needs so a
long time and I pressed ctrl-c

Here I have another question. When I settrans removeable media with
HURD, do I have to unsettrans the media before I remove them? And
where are the informations about the settransed filesystems are
stored? Is there a file in /etc

Where do I find these docs? Haven't found them till now...
