connection to AIX 4.3.3

Hello together,
im working with the evaluation version 1.3.9
and is is working perfektly with Solaris 8-x86 by broadcast chooser,
but i can't get a connection by broadcast chooser to an AIX machine.
is AIX not working with XDM Protokol or is there just an other port then 177?

Hello Rainer,

Why don't you make sure that XDM daemon is running on your AIX machine. The name of XDM daemon for AIX is `dtlogin'.
You can load dtlogin daemon by typing 'dtlogin -e' into command line and rebooting the AIX machine.

I hope it can help.

Thanks for your comment,
but is was another problem and we solvet it ;-)...

I think this could help someone else:
we have a class A net, with subnet masking
so we have subnetmasking over switchrouters internely.

But, the broadcast chooser ask for CDE maschines by broadcasting into your net, but it is a real broadcast, with is not routed.
meaning it is a NOT NETBIOS_over_IP.........
after connecting direkt to the AIX maschine it work perfectly..:-)..............

So it means everyone doing subnetmasking will have this problem...

Broadcasting over a subnet

A broadcast works only for a subnet.

If you want to connect to the host that is not on your subnet, you can add the hostname to the broadcast list by clicking "Register Host..." button on [Xconfig->XDMCP->Broadcast].
