Connect to Unix machine via Attachmate Reflection X Manager when user has to use 'pbsu'

Hello experts -

I'm trying to connect to HP-UX box (B.11.11) via Reflection X Manager (4.2.128).
Successfully got prompt for user password and password is accepted. This user is "domain_user". But next step is failing. This step is "pbsu box_user".

How should I configure X Client Definition to get trough?
(Can connect interactively via telnet session, however. The steps are: start telnet program to HP-UX box IP, authenticate domain_user, run "pbsu box_user", reply with PBSU password for domain_user)

Thank you!

No you should not reduce security and you should ask powerbroker support directly how to get X11 working (su and sudo has their graphic equivalents and those work just fine)

Which protocol do you have selected in the ReflectionX connection? Rexec, telnet, other?

you have PAM but no X11 instrumentation - you nee to use gksu (from gnome) kdesu (from kde) or compile ktsuss (needs GTK+) to have su/sudo with X11
