XManager does not open Solaris 9 GUI

 
Hi,

I am trying to use the latest version of Xmanager 1.3.9 evaluation version to connect to Solaris 9.
I am able to use Xstart and get a command line login screen, but when the broadcaster throws me the list of hosts I can login to... when i say connect... theres no reply for 4 - 5 minutes and then an error message comes back at the hash prompt of the Solaris machine.

I am trying to connect from a Windows XP Home Edition.

The /var/dt/errors file has this information in it.
Mon Oct 20 12:33:45 2003
error (pid 344): Hung in XOpenDisplay(192.168.0.100:0) attempt #0, aborting.

For your info... the 192.168.0.100:0 is my windows xp machine.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Re: XManager does not open Solaris 9 GUI

 
The problem might occur when:

- The locale of the Solaris server requires additional fonts.
- The dtlogin process doesn't work well with your Windows machine.
- The DISPLAY variable is fixed as ":0" in the shell scripts.

Please try to add a font server in the Xconfig. For more information on font server, please read FAQ #1 at:

/support/faq.html

Also, try to run Xbrowser instead Xmanager to connect to the Solaris machine.

If the problem persists, let us know the following:

- The locale setting of Solaris.
- C:\Program Files\Xmanager1.3.9\Xmanager.log
