Increasing NFS Timeouts?

» close window

The Question is:

I am having a problem with nfs mounting a unix disk on a different domain.
The unix system is a different location ie different domain.
The the unix system is in US location & VMS in India
1. I setup the proxy with the command
     ADD PROXY USERNAME /HOST=* /UID=uid /GID=gid /remote_user=ruser
2. I mount the disk as
      mount dnfs0: /host="myhost" /path="/export/home/myhome"
When i issue the above mount command .
I get the following error message
%TCPIP$DNFSMOUNT-E-MOUNTFAIL, error mounting _DNFS3:[000000]
-SYSTEM-F-TIMEOUT, device timeout
But i am able to mount Unix disk in the same local domain.
Is is possible to increse the timeout period ????

The Answer is :

  The qualifiers /timeout and /retries are available on the NFS MOUNT
  command used on OpenVMS.
