XDMCP request hangs
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
I use my machine as a X-Terminal to access more powerful UNIX machines on
my network. When I moved from RH6.1 to RH6.2 I have had the bad surprise to
discover that this does not work anymore.
I changed inittab (level 3 to 5 + the following two last lines:
# Run xdm in runlevel 5
# xdm is now a separate service
x2:5:respawn:/usr/X11R6/bin/X -indirect lorient.ffa.se
I changed Xservers by commenting the last line:
#:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
and I changed Xaccess:
< * #any host can get a login window
> # * #any host can get a login window
Unfortunately, this does not work. XDMCP hangs and does not list the
machine on the network not add my machine to the existing list.
What did I do wrong?...
Thanks in advance
you need to change the Xaccess file on the remote machine, not the local one.
If the remote machine is using gdm, you'll need to edit the gdm configuration,
not the Xaccess file (only used by kdm/xdm).
Actually my machine is listed on the net now. The problem is that I cannot get a
window on my own (the local) machine listing all the machines of the net
allowing me to connect to whatever machine I want.
