Hi Guys

I have a Sun Server Sunfire v880 .
I have installed HummingBird V.9.0 on my PC to connect to the Sun Server

But When I try to connect to the Sun Server using Xceed.
I get a error message Like
XDMCP has timeout.
Please suggest steps..

  Solaris' X entrance point is dtlogin, type
$ ps -ef | grep dtlogin
to check if "dtlogin" is running or not.

   If not, login Sun server and su to root, then run
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin start    <=== start dtlogin
make a link
# ln -s /etc/init.d/dtlogin /etc/rc2.d/S99dtlogin   <== it will start at boot up

   If there were no /etc/init.d/dtlogin, then change your Exceed setting (Xconfig) to use "multiple" in Window mode.
Then you should be able to use "/usr/openwin/bin/xterm -display @d" in Exceed to bring the X-window.

HI Wesly

I would like you to pls elaborate  the multiple in Window mode..

> multiple in Window mode
In this mode, you get a X-terminal window only.
But you can have more then one X-terminal window (mulitple) connected to the Solaris box.
In XDMCP, you open mulitple X-window within CDE (one icon on M$ Windows's taskbar).

I prefer "multiple" since it consume less network bandwidth.
You can test it by using "xstart" in Exceed.
