Gnome uses Esound system to transfer sound data. If you access Gnome with Xmanager, Gnome requests Esound service to the X server (Xmanager) machine. If TCP 16001 is blocked on your PC, login/logout may take a while due to delay of handling sound service request.
Note: In Windows Vista, we do not recommend using Esound daemon of Gnome system because even if the port is open, access to the port is blocked unless there is a service daemon running on the port.
How to disable Esound daemon on Linux
- After login to Gnome, System-> Preferences -> Hardware -> Sound -> Sounds tab
- Unselect 'Enable software sound mixing (ESD)'
How to disable Esound dameon on Solaris
- After login to Gnome, Launch -> Preference -> Desktop Preferences -> Sound
- Unselect Enable Sound Server Startup option on Sound Preference
Note: You can also Install Xmanager Patch (Xmanager 3.0 Build 0114 or higher, Xmanager Enterprise 3 build 0188 or higher): eSound processing is supported since these build versions.
