Hello,

is there anybody successfuly running Xvnc through inetd on AIX ?

I went through all the emails dealing with aix and found several peoples with
the same problem without correct solution.


Through inetd
- without started xdm or dtlogin and connecting to the Xvnc through inetd 
I will get vnviewer with shadow bitmap and mouse pointer (ok)

-having started xdm login session fails on authentication


cws:/usr/local/bin/ #./vncviewer pca1016d.vsb.cz:5953
VNC server supports protocol version 3.3 (viewer 3.3)
Unknown authentication scheme from VNC server: 172384628
cws:/usr/local/bin/ #


Lets try the same telneting to the port 5953

cws:/usr/local/bin #telnet pca1016d.vsb.cz 5953
Trying...
Connected to pca1016d.vsb.cz.
Escape character is '^]'.
RFB 003.003

Fatal server error:
XDMCP fatal error: Session declined No valid address

Connection closed.
cws:/usr/local/bin #


And report from xdm log (xdm -debug 2)

select returns 1.  Rescan: 0  ChildReady: 0
ProcessRequestSocket
header: 1 2 1
Query respond 1
ConvertAddr returning 0
all_query_respond: conntype=0, addr=9e, len=4
Send willing  Willing to manage
WaitForSomething
select returns 1.  Rescan: 0  ChildReady: 0
ProcessRequestSocket
header: 1 7 31
Request respond 31
Decline No valid address
WaitForSomething



According to my opinion this is the problem in the authentication process 
between vncviewer and xmd.  I have tried my own compiled binary, www.bull.de
 binary and Tridia with the same result.

Any advice what is the right remedy for the XDMCP's "Decline No valid address"
error?

Best regards,

Jan
