I'm not 100% certain, but the X11 servers on your xxx.xxx.86.0 subnet my be relying upon XDMCP broadcasts to locate the FreeBSD machine on the same subnet. Broadcasts cannot be routed between subnets and therefore your Windows XP system on your xxx.xxx.87.0 subnet won't be responded to by your FreeBSD machine. Rather than using broadcasts, you should be able to configure the X11 server software on your Windows XP system to do a direct XDMCP query of the FreeBSD system by specifying it's hostname or IP address. Because a specific IP address is used the XDMCP query will properly traverse the subnets to establish an X11 session.

I have a Windows XP machine at work that I am trying to get an X11 server to connect to a FreeBSD machine. The FreeBSD machine is on the xxx.xxx.86.0 network and the Windows XP machine is on the xxx.xxx.87.0 network. X11 servers on other machines on the xxx.xxx.86.0 network work fine with xdmcp. Is there some restriction on xdmcp to being on the same network or do I have to add some kind of special routing entry to handle this?Thanks. -- Glenn Johnson USDA, ARS, SRRC Phone: (504) 286-4252 New Orleans, LA 70124 e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
