I can't not see some workstation on Xbrower !!!

 
Hi,
I am working on a local LAN, without router, DNS server, and internet.
There are 5 sun workstations and 5 PCs on the LAN.
SUN workstation are using OS 5.7 or OS 5.8, PC are using OS WIN95 or WIN2000.
And now some workstation I can not see in Xbrower. But sometime it can list on Xbrower, next second the workstaion disapper on the Xbrowser.

The PC can ping to the workstation and the LAN is fine.

Could you help me?

Xbrowser broadcasts a query message(UDP) in every 5 or 10 seconds. If a willing message is arrived from a Unix server, it is displayed on the Xbrowser window. It is very simple message.

The dtlogin process in the Solaris server responds to the query message sent by Xbrowser. You need to check out "/var/dt/Xerrors" file in your Solaris server.

We saw this problem also with Solaris 8. We installed the latest dtlogin patch from Sun and that solved it. Patch id for sparc platform is 108919-14
