On HPuX or RHEL machine ?

Remember : other redhat machines able to share the nfs folder from my rhel nfs server.

but only hpux machine not able to mount and giving rpc authentication error please confirm again
On RHEL
What does showmount return?

showmount Remote_Server
showmount -e Remote_Server
get the latest NFS patches from HP for HP-UX, install the patch set, sit through the system boot and try the connectivity test again.

Also please elaborate by answering the below.

What is the mount command you used in the client?
what entry in hosts file of NFS server for the client?
