i too wanted to use those newer flatscreen monitor on my sparc20 and ultra1 boxes sometime back.

According to the monitor repair tech, she told me if I have an old sparc 5 upto ultra2 I can only use a normal svga CRT monitor to connect to a sun box using a special adapter vga-sun connector.

however if I want to connect old sun boxes to new flatscreen monitors it cannot work even if you use the special adapter.

The old sparc/ultra servers uses analog signals the newer flatscreen uses digital signals.

Only from ultra5 machine onwards can you use flatscreen.
