Re: XDMCP connection failed

There is no problem using Xmanager in a VPN environment. However, because your PC and the remote host are located in a different network, it is very difficult to use XDMCP. See below for your network configuration.

PC IP1: 192.168.17.xxx
PC IP2: 192.168.1.xxx
Remote server: 10.251.xxx.xxx

In such an environment, you can use SSH and Xstart as an alternative way to start your applications or CDE. To start CDE, in an xterm window, type the following command: /usr/dt/bin/Xsession &

Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
