this means either:

there are no host on the local subnet which are willing to let you
connect via XDMP or some thing is scrod in your config files (like wdm
is looking at xmd's config or some other random weirdness).

I've always found Linux XDMP (well XFree86 I guess) to be kind of
tempermental, I don't know where you're machine is network wise, but
if there's any Solaris boxen available try:

X -indirect solaris.my.network

making the apropriate name change, if this machine is on the same
subnet you could verify if there's simply no hosts willing to talk
