Access Solaris GUI Remotely

Have installed Solaris 10 into a Sun E4500 machine.  Am able to Telnet just fine as regular user and as root.

Now trying to use Attachmate Reflection X to connect to the server  but keep receiving following error:
"Connection Refused RX2443" <-- this message is from Reflection X interface.

I have several other Solaris servers that I can access just fine from Reflection.  This client session is defined exactly the same in Reflection so I don't think it's the software.  Likely I'm missing something in Solaris itself.

Could anyone assist me in figuring out what I'm missing?
Thank you.

Do you have a firewall in the middle between the two systems?

try to run

/etc/init.d/dtlogin start

om solaris

To further explain:
I am running the Reflection X software from a Windows Server 2003 to connect to the Solaris machine.  The goal being to be able to start up Solaris GUI applications such as SMC from the session started on the Windows box.

omarfarid:
Here is the result from the command you asked for:

# /etc/init.d/dtlogin start
/etc/init.d/dtlogin: svcadm: not found

Here's output from ps command looking for dtlogin:
# ps -ef | grep dtlogin
    root   494   437   0 16:18:05 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon - udpPort 0
    root   437     1   0 16:18:02 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon - udpPort 0

Thanks.

Oh... and there's no firewall.  Both servers are inside.  This is working fine between this same Windows servers and my other two Solaris servers.  Just not with this new install.

I got it now.

Had to enable 'rlogin' from Solaris command line.

#svcadm enable rlogin

I feel silly.
