[Mauiusers] OpenPBS can't connect to Maui

First of all, I am curious as to why you are using OpenPBS? OpenPBS is quite old, and unless you
have an extremely pressing need for using it I would suggest using TORQUE. TORQUE is based on
OpenPBS, but has much better scalability, stability, features, etc. You can download it from
http://www.clusterresources.com/products/torque. The steps for integrating Maui with TORQUE are the
same as those for integrating with PBS.

Next, I would recommend using a verbose name for the resource manager instead of just the number 0.
Change it to something like "base" or "pbs":

RMCFG[base] TYPE=pbs

Second, try removing the second RMCFG line. Usually Maui can communicate fine with PBS without
requiring a specific port or host. Also, what do Maui's log files indicate is happening after you
start Maui? I would look there for some clues as well.
