Can I log into a HP box from a Sun?? - Sun Solaris

Hi, I've a Sun Ultra 80 running Solaris 9, a Dec Alpha running Tru64 5.1B UNIX and a HP C3000 running HP-UX 11. Before logging into the Sun, one is presented with a login screen which has the option to log in from to the local host or a remote machine. The Dec Alpha, which runs CDE is seen on the list of remote hosts, so I can remotely log into the Dec Alpha from the Sun. (So too is another Solaris machine, but that is hardly surprising.) However, I'm not shown the HP 11 machine as a networked device ...

    Default Can I log into a HP box from a Sun??

    Hi,
    I've a Sun Ultra 80 running Solaris 9, a Dec Alpha running Tru64 5.1B
    UNIX and a HP C3000 running HP-UX 11.

    Before logging into the Sun, one is presented with a login screen
    which has the option to log in from to the local host or a remote
    machine. The Dec Alpha, which runs CDE is seen on the list of remote
    hosts, so I can remotely log into the Dec Alpha from the Sun. (So too
    is another Solaris machine, but that is hardly surprising.)

    However, I'm not shown the HP 11 machine as a networked device I can
    log into.

    All machine run CDE, but are Sun's and HP's versions (both HP-UX and
    Tru64 are operating systems from HP).

    Any suggestions, or now I might resolve this?

    Assuming the machine is on the same subnet, it is not configured to
    respond to XDMCP requests; on a Sun I believe the file is
    /usr/dt/config/Xconfig I don't know what the HP config file is.

    One question: do you know how to ssh to the HP box and export the graphical
    display back to the sun? This is a preferred method as all your traffic
    is encrypted between the hosts; I might suggest that since
    colleagues/students with Linux/Unix boxes basically have packet sniffing and
    ysis tools at their fingertips.

    That list is generated from an XDMCP broadcast to the local subnet.
    The HP may be configured not to respond - check the Xaccess file
    for dtlogin/xdm (whichever it is running to handle XDMCP requests).

    Run Doctor DT on the HP machine: /usr/contrib/bin/X11/dr_dt
    Make sure CDE is actually running on HP
    Make sure DNS is configured or, if using host files, that they match.
    Dump the contents of dr_dt to me by mail at
    [email]dmercermn.rr.com[/email] and I'll have a look at it.

    I resolved this. When I installed the OS, I was one disk missing, so
    skipped a disk. For this reason, I did a reinstall of the OS once I'd
    located the missing CD. Whether the problem was due to the missing CD or
    not I don't know, but it works okay now, so the problem is solved.

    As I've said, I solved this now.

    The answer is I don't know, but suspect I can probably find some
    information on how to do it. If you have any particular tips doing it on
    a Sun I'd be interested. The computers in question are home computers
    behind a firewall, with only a 56k dialup modem. Hence it's not a big
    deal, although ssh can be configured to compress, which might make the
    transfer faster. However, I do have a need to do this at work, so I am
    interested in the process.
