XDMCP connection failed


my Xmanager works well with one unix (HP-ux) host and gives me "XDMCP connection failed" with another (SunOS)

- i have the Xtart xterm

what are the config to make on the unix server (exhaustivly please) for working with Xmanager?

PS: my "uname -s" command gives me "SunOS"!!is it different from Sun Solaris??!!!

Re: XDMCP connection failed

The Sun server is in another network and there may be a firewall between your PC and the server.

Please read FAQ #4 at:


If you can get an xterm program with Xstart, run /usr/dt/bin/Xsession at the prompt of xterm to get a CDE desktop.
