I'm a noob myself, but I just did this, so: 1) edit etc/ttys, so the 8th one has xdm and change the no to yes in the second to last field (test by rebooting, should go to an x login, after a slight pasue) ctrl-alt-f<n> will still get you back to the text terminals.
2) edit the .Xaccess file in the location specified for xdm in the handbook, add a "LISTEN *" line. 3) edit the xdm-config file, and uncomment that last line that says xdm shouldn't look outside. 4) We use Xming and OpenSSH to connect from windows - configure Xming for the ssh login method, and tell it to run a program, namely "gnome-seesion", "xfce4-session", or "xterm" depending on how much X you want. I'll send you my Xming launcher file if you like. Thoughts - make sure you can run startx normally on the machine, and logon once with raw ssh so it can do the key thing and store it - doesn't seem to work from Xming that first time. I'm aauming you are connecting from windows. On another freebsd box, one would assume it's easier thanconfiguring xming. best, Steve On 12/9/06, dick hoogendijk <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
I run solaris and FreeBSD. In solaris I can login on a remote machine with an X session. I can't see my freebsd machine though. I have no idea where the config to make this possible resides on FreeBSD. I guess X runs without broadcasting itself on fbsd.
