So, has anyone being able to connect to a SunOS 5.11 from Windows XP using 
cygwin XWin?  If no one has, then, I will stop and see other options, but I 
would like to be able to do this with cygwin and not any other tool.  I know 
cygwin pretty well and don't want to move.  Thanks for the support.

Oh, I tried these other options,

Commented xdm DisplayManager.requestPort:     0 
(!DisplayManager.requestPort:     0)

Also added the ip and hostname of the window client to /etc/hosts and still 
no success.  And also tried this command,

xwin :0 -clipboard -query -from -fp 

See attached log.  Thanks for your support.
