I've been following this thread because I was trying to set up XDMCP. I ended up getting the TightVNC/Gnome Remote Desktop to work properly, but I would much rather have XDMCP. So far, I log in as root, open a terminal, and use the gdmsetup process to get the Gnome Login Window Preferences configuration dialog. I then click on the Remote tab and select "Same as Local" from the drop down menu. A button named "Configure XDMCP" should appear at the bottom of the window. When clicked, a bunch of miscellaneous options are shown, but note the UDP port 177. That should be open on the firewall along with ports 6000 through 6005 (or something like that). I simply used the defaults. Next, click on the Security tab at the top of the dialog window (after closing the "Configure XDMCP" dialog). I unchecked the "Deny TCP connections to Xserver" (though I think this is not necessary). Then, click on the bottom button named "Configure X Server". You need to have at least one Xserver available for remote connections. This is where I get stuck. Using Xming on Windows XP, I was able to connect to the Xserver and get the grey root screen, but that is it. Also, I am using GDM as a display manager. I have found no good HOWTO's yet, so help would be appreciated. The Help is fairly descriptive, but does not walk you through the process. Finally, the X manual pages describe how to setup XDM, but so far I have not tried that approach. Hopefully this is helpful to the original poster of this thread. -Michael S.
