Is a "dtlogin" process running on machine C? If not, run it as following:

# dtconfig -e
# dtconfig -reset

Good luck!

I am running into the same problem with a solaris 8 host. I did a dtconfig -e and then a dtconfig -reset. My xbrowser will still not display my host though even with the ip address specifically added.

Has anyone had this before?

Try to find a "dtlogin" process on your Solaris as following:

# ps -aef | grep dtlogin

Also, check /usr/dt/config/Xconfig and comment out the following line:

# Dtlogin.requestPort: 0

If the dtlogin works well, there may be a firewall between your PC and Solaris. Xmanager does not work in a complex network.

One more thing, try to enter an IP address instead a hostname. The hostname may not be mapped to a correct IP address for the Solaris machine.
