Lightbulb Xdmcp


Hi frnds



Hi
Thanx for your help. But I am able to see the linux machine in my
network neighbourhood. now when I try to enter the machine it asks for
the password It is asking for some password for \WOLFRAM\IPC$. where
wolfram is the name of the linux machine.

Now here In windows I thought I should log out. But It doesnt allow me
to log out and it hangs when I try to log out. So which password should
I try with.?

What abt XDMCP how should I make my linux machine respond to xdmcp
connection any1 having ny idea?

Dhiraj


I have a windows 98 machine and in that I have installed X manager. Now
I have a linux machine which is having Red Hat Linux 8.0 (Aquamarine).
It is having a GUI login.

Now I tried to make it into an XDMCP server using XDMCP how to but in
the middle of it also I was confused. The problem is that what is the
display manager for the login screen itself. I know that when a user
logins he can choose his display manager. But where do I do
modifications so that it becomes an XDMCP server and after this also my
X manager is not showing it in the detected system.

How do i convert it.

And secondly why is there no XDMCP GUI configuration tool available in
Linux 8.0

And what are the other options by which I can get my GUI from an X
server

and can the same thing be done with windows?

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated ...

I found out finally that in RHL8.0 they have given how to set up XDMCP.
It is in System Settings -> Login Screen and the last option there is
for XDMCP.

But after this now I have another problem. I clicked on Enable XDMCP
and probably it is being configured as XDMCP server. But now how do I
get the XDMCP login screen on my own machine.

If you are using cygwin, you would type..

/usr/X11R6/bin/X -query [hostname or IP]
