I got a Sun GDM 20E20 working with an Indy. By default it does not
accept sync-on-green and gives no picture on an Indy. If it is
running on a Sparc and provides a picture there, one can access the
on-screen-menu and enable sync-on-green support there. Afterwards it
worked on an Indy.

Perhaps there is a similar option with the monitor models you have.
One caveat: IIRC somebody told me that there are different versions
of the 20E20 and that not all of them have this sync-on-green option.
