Re: xwindow


Hi,

Please be a bit more specific about what
command you are trying that is failing.
What kind of machines are involved?
As for hardware, this should not be an
issue as long as you have a graphics display
where you want to run the xserver.

Re: xwindow

Hi
run dr_dt command and have a look at output.
Check name resolving, and check result of hostname command and entry for hostname in /etc/hosts and /etc/rc.config.d/netconf

hope it help

Re: xwindow

Hi,

Two things to check from the server side if your using a PC x windows emulator. Look for processes like these:

# ps -ef | grep dtlogin
root 3408 3374 0 Apr 19 ? 0:01 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin
root 20588 3408 0 May 28 ? 0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin
root 29149 15068 0 17:22:06 pts/td 0:00 grep dtlo
root 24864 3408 0 May 27 ? 0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin

Have a look at the tail of your /etc/rc.log file for this to make sure that it starts automatically from your boot. If it does not appear it is not configured correctly.
Start CDE login server
Output from "/sbin/rc3.d/S990dtlogin.rc start":

Re: xwindow

see if port 6000 is listening on the server side:

# netstat -an | grep 6000

in my example I am the first IP:

tcp 0 0 1.2.3.4.59220 1.2.3.1.6000 ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 1.2.3.4.59210 1.2.3.1.6000 ESTABLISHED

Later,
Bill
It works for me (tm)

Re: xwindow

just to clarify 1.2.3.1 is the hp-ux server running the netstat command, and 1.2.3.4 is my login client.

Later,
Bill

Re: xwindow

Hi,

just like the rest of us I do have the problem of understanding *where* your difficulties are...

Can you set the "$DISPLAY" on your HP-UX and send an X-client's window to the PC?
Or can you not get the login dialog from the HP-UX onto your PC?
In the first case, everything from routing to X-Windows authentication would have to be checked, in the latter, maybe you have a firewall in between the two, or your subnet mask is wrong?

We need more details about your environment!
