Auth problems

  This is all a bit tedious for the list but I could really do 
with a few pointers.  I am currently trying to intall coda and 
have hit a bit of a brick wall. I followed all the instructions 
for intalling vice and venus both of which are running on the 
same server.  However when I run 'au -h server nu' I enter a 
username and password and It hangs then finnaly aborts whith 
an error. Here is an example

[root_at_ingrid]# au -h ingrid nu
Your Vice name: horms
Your password:
RPC2_Bind() --> RPC2_NOBINDING (F)

and here is my /vice/db/users.coda

horms has an entry in /etc/passwd and /etc/passwd-

groups.coda is empty and I have created vice.pcf and vice.pdb
as per the manual.

Running an strace on au reveals that it is repeatedly trying to
run sendto(3, "\0\0\0\10\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\1"..., 294, 0, {sin_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(1357), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16) = 294.
This should be ok because is the IP address of my maching
and auth2 is listening for udp connection s on port 1357.

I am running this on a Redhat 5.1 system and I installed 
using the following RPMs;

I also insalled the coda kernel module manually.

The only unusual thing I noticed was that auth2 wans't running
and I started this manually. Am I right in thinking that this
should start up when you run startserver?

On a seprate issue I noticed that my machine seems to be trying to 
contact ( via UDP on port 1361.
This would seem to indicate that venus is trying to talk to 
a vice on that machine. Any ideas?
