Is anyone accessing Solaris-9 from a W2K client using an XDMCP query via a
batch file with the line:
"start XWin.exe -query <solaris9-host> "
I had to add "fp tcp/<solaris9-host>:7100"
in order to get the Solaris-9 CDE login window to appear.  I log in OK but
the CDE window that appears has a munged up post script sign in the bottom
right-hand corner.  this is not a problem to me except that it also gives
me an error when I try to run a graphical application.  If I point the font
server to a Solaris 2.6 machine, the application works, but the output is
squashed down so it is very hard to read.  I suspect this is a font
problem, but I don't know how to fix it.  Is anyone a Solaris-9/cygwin
expert that may have any suggestions here?
