XDMCP connection failed!

hi, all:
Recently, I ordered compaq True64 unix to run my programes while edit source code through Xmanager in WIN2000 host. To my surprise, one of two unix host can't be connected by my Xmanager outputing "XDMCP connection failed, try again?". At the same time, the
other is connected successfully. I checked "/var/dt/Xerrors" file which revealed the error information like this "Cannot convert Internet address to host name". is my win2000 host ip address.

who can tell me why this unix host can not be connected successfully?

Re: Re: XDMCP connection failed!

The Xmanager.log file has no errors in it. Please reload the file after you connect to the Unix that has a connection problem.

If the problem Unix is located in a different subnet, a connection can't be established.
