CDE dtchooser setup

Can someone provide advice or a solution for getting the dtchooser to function in my configuration, here's what I have:

SparcStation IPX running Solaris 2.5, this machine has a Sun monitor and keyboard connected.

SparcStation IPC running Solaris 2.5, this machine only has a dumb terminal connected.

What I want to do:
I understand that the CDE dtlogin can be configured to start an X terminal on any server on the net using the dtchooser.

I'd like to start the dtlogin in daemon mode on the IPC and allow people using the IPX as an X term to start an X session with the IPC.  The dtchooser apparently would allow a user sitting at the IPX to choose whether to start an X session between the IPX or IPC, once they picked an X server to log into they would see the normal dtlogin window for the server they picked.

Any thoughts on this?  I've picked through the CDE answerbook, however, it was not very clear to me and I couldn't get it to work.

Thank you,
-Mike

I hate to be forced into a grading system, bleh. There should be
an 'incomplete' option. The answer to my question was not
specific.  On which machine do I do this on? The IPX or IPC?
However, I did try it on both and it did not work, infact it
messed up the IPX's display manager and could not log in. I had
to log in through the IPC to the IPX reset the config file and
reboot.  If you have more specific information available, please,
let me know.

This isn't exactly what you want, but...

On the machine you want to use as an Xterm, stop all window stuff, (Xsun , dtlogin ) make sure OPENWINHOME is set to /usr/openwin, and start X with this command:

/usr/openwin/bin/X -indirect "NAME_OF_THE_OTHER_MACHINE"

This will start dtchooser, You could place this in the rc's, the only drawback is having to kill it and restart dtlogin to access the local machine, maybe something clever could be devised to do that though...

I am not saying this is the only way, just the only one I know without further research...
