XDMCP fatal error: Session declined No valid address

Hi ppl, anyone has encounter this error before? I can't remote login to another machine residing in the same subnet via CDE and the error I get in var/dt/Xerrors is

XDMCP fatal error: Session declined No valid address
Name: submenu_options_button
Class: XmRowColumn
Illegal mnemonic character; Could not convert X KEYSYM to a keycode

I've been working on this problem for days but can't solve it. When I did a remote login, the screen simply blink a few times then back to the local CDE login page. I have done a snoop on the interface and the traffic did arrive at the remote machine, but the remote machine is not replying so I wonder what could be the problem? I tried to play around with the settings in /usr/dt/config/Xserver and Xconfig but doesn't help at all...Smilie

I dont quite understand why you're doing this.
You can use xhost on your current CDE ...? tried that?
