Hi Rambo,

this is the answer from Ralf Puchner in the thread mentioned above that you need.

greetings,

Michael

you must add

hostname:0

(where hostname is the name of your x-terminal, be sure the name is RFC952 compliant and doesn't contain "_" etc.) into /etc/securettys

The Tru64 maschine must be able to resolv the hostname
