Exceed 2008 - xdmcp login to hp-ux 11i

Gents
A weird problem. Have 3 win-xp pc's and 2 hp-ux 11i workstations, on all pc's Exceed was working fine until this weekend.

Now : Pc1 can exceed-login to both hp-ux workstations.
pc2 and pc3 can ONLY log onto hp-ux1 machine.

All pc's can see both hp-ux machines (have put in ip+hostname in hosts-file).

so pc1 : works on both hp-ux
pc2+pc3 can see all hp-ux but only remote login to one of them.

When choosing hp-ux2, nothing happen (no login-windows or anything).

Can telnet to both machines from all pc's.

We used to stud with Exceed a long time ago, so I cannot remember what is wrong with it, but we decided to use another GUI Managers.

If you want to try free version of powerful GUI Manager I recommend you to use MobaXterm.

hello and thank you for your reply.
We have been using Exceed for 10+ years and are using it on over 4-5 different locations and have done so without any major problems until now.

Most likely this is caused by a tiny 'change' to a setting, either on server or pc, but I dont think it will be serious enough to consider changing to a different solution ;-)

Re: Exceed 2008 - xdmcp login to hp-ux 11i

what is the version of HPUX on the servers you cannot connect to ?

if 11iv3, CDE is NOT installed by default and hence no response from the XMDP

The version is hp-ux 11.11 (hp-ux 11i).
I enabled the logging just before posting yesterday, will check if there is anything in the logs now.

Re: Exceed 2008 - xdmcp login to hp-ux 11i

workaround-solution was to put the pc's ip-address+hostname in the hp-ux's hostname-file (/etc/hosts)

Re: Exceed 2008 - xdmcp login to hp-ux 11i

Hi Thomas,
I met the same problem.
But i tried the workaround-solution, it can not solve my problem.
I have 2 Windows server 2008 based systems, and 2 HP servers.
I just put the Windows server IP + hostname in /etc/hosts...no help...

Did you have any other methods??
Thanks!
