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.

    > 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.
