Hummingbird Exceed Issue

Hi,

We have a Solaris Server and XP workstations connecting to the server using Exceed 3D 8.0
For some strange reason, some of my client machines work one shot if i configure them (eliminating a server issue)

but on other machines the following happens:

I configured the exceed client in the exact same way as the first machine that works, and when i connect, and open a server session, all i get is a Gray Screen with a Solaris Type cursor.... I do not get the login prompt..

Any ideas as to why this might happen?

Thanks
Jacauc

whew!  Been a while since I used Exceed. So you copied the working connection string from another PC.  Seems to me part of that string is an "export display" where you put the IP address of the workstation you're at.  Worth a look?

Something else just occured to me, it could be an XP firewall issue:

If It doesn't sound familiar to you it may not apply.  I'm referring to the settings for an Xstart session.  It would be saved as filename.xs.  What settings did you copy over from the working PCs?

I do the config on Windows with the XConfig program (similar look and feel as Windows Control Panel)
Then, in the Xconfig, i click the option "Launch exceed with current settings"

I am starting to believe it doesn't necessarily have to do with the connection settings.  I'm sort of at a loss unless your Solaris server is only allowing a certain number of simultaneous connections.

Silly question:

Have you considered using VNC instead of Hummingbird?

Uses less resources, AND is network friendly...  AND, works on Solaris, AND can be secured over ssh, AND.....

Just my $0.02
