DECwindows XLIB Client Security Authorization?

» close window

The Question is:

I have 2 DMCC Workstations with OVMS 7.1-2 and the same Application
For Print entire Screen I use '$ xwd -disp host:0.0 -root -out outfile' on
both WS.
Same Def. in both WS for:
- Security in Session Manager;
- Sys$LOGIN:DECW$SMB_security.dat.
One WS Funtion is ok, the other shows error:
XLIB: connection to host:0.0 refused by server
XLIB: client ist not authorized to connect to server.
The 100 Dollar question: Whats the difference ???

The Answer is :

  In appears that one of the two systems is enabled for access
  on the remote system, the other is not.
  Please see the security menu for details, and check the DECwindows
  server log for details of the particular incoming connection -- check
  the IP address, the particular upper or lowercasing used, and the
  correct address to node name translation.
