RE: Q: Connecting to remote system.

Thanks.  It seems like my inferno is indifferent about multiple users on =
a system.  On the unix box an inferno user has all the inferno =
environment.  While a user named jhitt is tring to do the serving.  =
Jhitt can not write to the signerkey file, and this makes things not =

Q: Will inferno support multiple users under the same environment?  Or =
is the same environment the network?  Please explain.

Let's first make sure everything is setup correctly.  You do not
need to do the bind and start of the connection service (cs).  The
srv service is all you need.  On the Solaris (Signer) box you
need to setup a directory for your login under the usr directory
and the create a keyring subdirectory.  Now do the following after
starting the emu:

Solaris$ lib/srv
Solaris$ changelogin <your login name>
Solaris$ getauthinfo default

Now you should be ready for remote connections. You only need to=20
changelogin once and if you decided to save the authinfo you do
not need to do this again either.
