Using Xmanager with SOLARIS 5.5.1 with openwin

 
When I connect to a solaris station, I get this error message in the windows message from remote execution:

Sun Microsystems Inc. SunOS 5.5.1 Generic May 1996
goyave%
goyave% /usr/openwin/bin/Xmanager.sh -display 133.1.61.227:0.0
No display available for screen 0
goyave%

I have the same problem connecting on the same subnet of the station and with a 19" screen 1280*1024
133.1.61.227 is the ip of my pc (using windows 2000 pro).
I put my address in /etc/hosts
I wonder if I have to correct Xmanager.sh because of the use of 0.0 instead of hostname:0 ?

The result is that although I can connect on the station, I can't use completely my application.

Re: Using Xmanager with SOLARIS 5.5.1 with openwin

 
Both hostname:0 and hostname:0.0 are correct.
Please do the following steps for your OpenWindows connection.:

1. run xterm using Xstart.
/usr/openwin/bin/xterm -ls $DISPLAY

2. run olwm at the xterm prompt.
# /usr/openwin/bin/olwm &

Xmanager.sh is a script to run "olwm" program and if it doesn't work, you can just run the "olwm" directly at the command prompt.
