If I have a Client and Server where the client is automounting an NFS file system from a shared directory on the server, is the current user's(on the client) login name anywhere in the packet data that is sent across the network.  I know that I can get the UID and GID from the packet but the login name would be most helpful.  I'm using Microsoft's Network Monitor to view packets of data when I issue commands from the client but was wondering if login name was sent when the system first boots.  Can anyone help?

As far as I know, NFS works off of UID's and GID's only. You won't see the login name in the packet. You could always grep for the UID in the /etc/passwd field of the NFS server anyway to get the Login Name, or in the case of using NIS, ypcat passwd | grep <UID>
