Re: xdmcp connection failing on solaris9

First, make sure that dtconfig is running on the Solaris machine. If not, follow the instruction of Xmanager FAQ # 3 to enable/disable dtconfig process.


Since Xmanager is a server program, the remote host must be able to make a connection back to your local PC. From the local PC, allow incoming TCP 6000~6010 ports. Please refer to Xmanager FAQ # 5, 12 for more information on Howto setup a firewall.

If everything fails, please send us the Xmanager log file. It is located in the following directory.

C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\NetSarang\Xmanager\2\Log\*.log

Hope this solves your problem.
