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

closing the "Configure XDMCP" dialog). I unchecked the "Deny TCP

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
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

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.
