You can find a solution to this issue from tru64 faq list:

http://www.tru64.org/faq/tru64_faq.php3

Please read the answer of Graphics #3 in the page above.

In short, you should add your display name in the /etc/securettys file to login as root. For example, if the hostname of your PC is "pc1.domain", you should add the following line in the file:

pc1.domain:0

If you are using Xbrowser, you should add additional lines such as:

pc1.domain:0
pc1.domain:1
pc1.domain:2
...
pc1.domain:10

Xbrowser allocates a unique number starting from 1.

Also, be sure that the hostname of your PC is registered correctly in the name server or /etc/hosts file of the Unix.
