on a hpux 11iv2 environment, how do I bind NFS traffic in a network segment on a HPUX client?
Because we don't want to the traffic to interfere the primary segment. Thanks a lot for your ideas.

Presumably you have multiple network interfaces on both your NFS client and server. If that's the case, then mount the NFS filesystem using the IP address on the NFS server that corresponds to the desired network interface on the client.
For example, my NFS client has two network interfaces:
My NFS server has two network interfaces:
I want my NFS traffic to use the 192 network so the 15 network is not disturbed. I would mount the filesystem as:
# mount 184.108.40.206:/vol /nfs_mount
That way the NFS traffic would be forced to use the 192 subnet to get to the server.

Thank you for your input!
I did not make myself clear.
Actually, we only have one NIC card on NFS server, and two cards on NFS client. they are all in different segments.
for instance, on the server 220.127.116.11, on the client, I have 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 (primary), I wanted to have NFS traffic bond on 192 segment. Could I achieve that?

yes, 15 segment can be routed to 192 segment on NFS client, but I don't know how to restric NFS traffic on 192 segment. Currently, by default, NFS traffic is to 20 segment (primary) which is not what I would like to.

# ifconfig lan0:1 126.96.36.199
That would create a 15 subnet virtual IP address on your lan0 interface. Then when you send packets to the server's IP address the routing protocol should see that you have a 15 address on a local interface and use it to send/receive packets. If that doesn't work you're likely looking at adding new routing table entries to explicitly determine the routes on the client and server.

That sounds a good idea, I will certainly try that out late.
What tool, or how would you know if NFS traffic is really happening on 192 segment?
