Re: "Register the hostname of PC in the remote host" error

 
The message might be displayed when the Xstart with REXEC or RSH protocol is used to connect to the remote host. You need to add the PC's name into the "/etc/hosts" and "$HOME/.rhosts" files.

If it doesn't solve the problem, just try the TELNET protocol in Xstart.

It is an xterm window and you can run other graphical applications in the prompt.

To get a full desktop environment (XDMCP connection), you need to run Xbrowser or Xmanager, not the Xstart. For detailed XDMCP connection, please read "Getting Started" section of Xmanager Help.
