I am getting the following error when I am trying to use
rdump from an HP-UX system to a tape device on a Dec alpha box. They both run unix, digital unix and hp-ux. The error
and command I am using on the hp box is.

rdump -0uf dante:/dev/nrmt0h /

error:
rdump: cannot connect to dante

I have add the hp's hostname to the /etc/hosts.equiv and
~.rhosts files. I have also check that rexec is setup
on both systems.

From the OSF/1 rdump(8) man page:

-----Excerpt-------------

                        Note
The rdump command starts remote server /usr/sbin/rmt or /etc/rmt on the client machine to access the storage medium.  Another vendor's rdump command may fail because rmt is not located in /etc.  To avoid this problem, it may be necessary to provide a symbolic link on the DEC OSF/1 machine pointing to /usr/sbin/rmt as shown in the following example:

       ln -s /usr/sbin/rmt /etc/rmt

----End Excerpt----------------

If making that symbolic link doesn't help, I suggest you check the rexec setup again.  When you're logged in as root on the HP, you must be able to do "rsh dante ls /" and get a listing of dante's root directory.  If you get any other response, you've still got problems.
