    Does anyone know how to get NFS (GuardianOS Linux kernal) to allow unlimited
    read-only access to an NFS share. All the access will be from one client
    (VMS 7.3) , but the user accounts are highly variable, so keeping a user
    list on the NFS server isn't feasible.

    Thanks,
    Mike Ober.

    The traditional way was to put the files in user guest, UID -2,
    and world read access for those files.

    If the files have world read permission, it shouldn't matter
    what UID or GID they have.
