Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 79421
xdmcp session counting gone wrong?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:59 EDT
Description of Problem:
I have enabled xdmcp, but I get:
XDMCP fatal error: Session declined Maximum number of open sessions from your
from my remote host. But that host is freshly booted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# Distributions: Ship with this off. It is never a safe thing to leave
# out on the net. Alternatively you can set up /etc/hosts.allow and
# /etc/hosts.deny to only allow say local access.
# Willing script, none is shipped and by default we'll send
# hostname system id
This remote host has had trouble with NMI lockups, forcing me to hit the reset
switch. So the connections aren't terminating nicely, but should still get
reset once the machine comes back up. Perhaps gdm misses that.
