You have to specify the ip address (or the name if present in the DNS/host file) of the workstation you want to use for the connection in the file /etc/securettys.

ie
#
#
/dev/console
local:0
192.168.5.46:0 <<<<--- your workstation

Hi Manuel,

FYI... to determine what to place in your /etc/securettys file, you can review the /var/adm/syslog.dated/current/auth.log file for the message "ROOT LOGIN REFUSED". this message will coincide with the root login attempt from the CDE greeter box and announce where the request to login came from - either the IP Address or IP Hostname. See the example below.

Oct 1 14:43:25 alphawork syslog: ROOT LOGIN REFUSED pcname-w2k.mycompany.net:0

Using the above example I would add pcname-w2k.mycompany.net:0 to my /etc/securettys file.
