XDMCP and KDM

Post by Master of Reality » Sun Jun 15, 2008 12:43 pm

(edit: this isnt really Kubuntu/Debian specific, so maybe it shouldnt be in the debian section?)

In the past i've successfully configured XDMCP and GDM to login to a server from a laptop terminal.

Now I cant figure out how to do the same with KDM.

I've edited kdmrc and enabled xdmcp, specified port 177 and the Xaccess file location.

I edited the Xaccess file to accept all connections.

There is no firewall between the server and the terminal.

When i try to connect from the terminal (using "X -query 192.168.1.1") it tries to start X and then fails.

The output says it was reject from IP 192.168.1.1 (with 5 attempts) before exiting.

Anything i missed, has anyone else gotten XDMCP and KDM working successfully? (in all my searching i havent seen any successful attempts with kdm)
