    Question for you ... do you *really* want to start a desktop X11 session or do you just want access to a remote graphical desktop ?

    X11 is a hugely FAT protocol.  There are lots of folks to use VNC to startup a desktop session (e.g. KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox, CDE, whatever) that connects to the VNC X server that runs a remote server.  Then they connect to that remote desktop via vncclient.  So all you are getting back from the remote desktop is VNC display updates.  **VERY** much lighter in network traffic than X11.

    The other huge benefit to using VNC is the ability to disconnect from your VNC session and your desktop session stays up waiting for you to return to later with everything exactly how you left it.  Even applications you want running while your gone have no knowledge that you've disconnected e.g. long running compile jobs, some graphical conversion process, etc.

    But to answer your question, to start say KDE on Linux you need to tell Exceed to run /opt/kde3/bin/startkde.  I'm a Solaris admin by trade but I don't use JDS (e.g. Gnome - I hate it) so I don't use it so I can't tell you have to start it.  On my Solaris servers I use Fluxbox generally.  If I need a specific Solaris X11 GUI, I usually use X display it back without the need for the entire desktop.

    If you want to display the Full desk top of your Solaris box, you can use
    Exceed (Hummingbird) to make an XDMCP connection.

    Please read the following docs to learn how to configure Exceed (Hummingbird)  to make the connection:
