While casually playing around during a recent visit to Rutgers, I was
able to sucessfully mount and access an NFS file system over the
Arpanet (cross-country). Things were a bit slow and I experienced
timeouts, but it did work (and that was back when the performance of
our Arpanet connection was quite bad). I didn't even bother to
specify anything other than the default NFS mount parameters.

I was waiting to see if the operator at Rutgers would come running
into the systems office complaining about messages on the console "NFS
server presto.ig.com not responding" what should I do :-).
