When i try to connect to our Solaris 9 server from Windows xp client, i am not getting the login prompt. I tried resetting the tcp-ip protocol, but it didnt help.
I did a tracert from the xp client to the solaris server, there are only 3 hops and there is no delay in the hops. The response time is 1 ms in all the 3 hops. When i change the static IP of the client, it started working and i am getting the command prompt and able to login. Other xp machines in the same machines are able to get the command prompt and login without issues at the same time. Could you please help me on this issue, why i am not getting the login prompt?
I have seen that if the target system does not know how to reverse map the IP address of the incoming host, the telnet login will hang. Do you have the IP address of the XP system in the /etc/inet/hosts file of the Solaris system? Or have DNS properly configured so the reverse IP mapping occurs?
Thanks for your reply.
Reverse lookup is happening in the solaris server. The server is resolving the IP to the hostname without any issue. How to check the reverse lookup in DNS server?.
Its started connecting to the server after changing the IP(static) of the xp client. Really appreciate your help.
