Hi!

I'm finally done with the install of Sol9 on my V100. Now the LAN works also with 192.168.0.111 set for the machine, hostname sun. I wish to use the graphical interface of Solaris but dont have a clue what to do.
- what should I use to connect to the machine to see the graphical interface when it starts up and runs?
- is there any command I should enable this on the machine?

Help!!!

Assuming you have dtwm installed (to check use pkginfo |grep SUNWdt)
and you have a startup script (//etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin), simply point any X display, either another unix / linux machine with a gui or a PC X server application like exceed or excursion at it, you may need to modify /usr/dt/config/Xaccess and or /etc/dt/config/Xaccess to add the IP of that machine, or allow any IP in.

You'd have to buy the two I mentioned, but there are freeware / shareware version.  Have a look in http://directory.google.com/Top/Computers/Software/Operating_Systems/Graphic_Subsystems/X11/Servers/?il=1


cygwyn or vnx have good reputations, though I've never used any of the free ones
