Command line Interface or GUI Interface not shown on solaris

Dear all,
I am a newbie in solaris and I need your advice.

I have a Solaris version 5.9 installed on Sunfire V240.
I am able to ssh the machine from putty remotely.

My problem is that I cannot see the display from KVM switch I have connected to it. I need also to be able to see the GUI interface of that macine.


Thanks in advance.

If you have a command to launch that, then use -X while ssh and then try launching. You should be able to see..

Or if that is something which will be available by default, then go for remote desktop... ( instead of ssh )

- execute-eeprom input-device=keyboard
- restart- reboot
