I remember that I used cygwin (version from the middle of December 2002) to
connect to this machine - X environment was transferred smoothly. The only
requirement was that I had to add "-fp" parameter - and it worked. I also
remember that locally my xserver could not display the exact fonts used on
Solaris, but it used other. From the last few months this machine was not
changed anyhow - now cygwin cannot connect to it using xdmcp. Maybe startup
scipts were changed from this time?

I will try this, but actually don't know when.

As above.

I will try to find it out.
