Can't copy file to linux via NFS fro Alpha

When we attempt to copy a file over the NFS to linux (Exported from linux) we get a message stating "Not owner" or something to that extent and a zero byte file is created with the requested name.  However, if we log into linux and try the copy from the exported Alpha file to the Linux, everything works great.

Thanks

My best guess is that you have a permissions problem.  Though I don't have a solution, I have some suggestions.

Are you SURE that the uid/gid for the user in question are are
the same between the ALPHA and the linux box, and that the
directory has the same UID/GID.

Can we assume your are running NFSD as root?

Are you trying this as root?  Depending on your setup root
might not have these permissions on the exported system.
