Unhappy Fedora 3 XServer file locations


OK -- I've done the searching (deja, here, other linux boards). Since about 2:00 am CST (roughly 9 hours). I can't find it!

I'm trying to set up my Fedora 3 (with all options installed) so I can run X remotely. Can someone tell me where the (*^%@( configuration files are so I can configure XServer to allow access from another IP?

I've made changes to all files as noted in http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO...dure.html#PREPhttp://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO...dure.html#PREP

I've made changes to:
  • /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config (comment out last line as described in file).
  • /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc (set enabled=true in xdmcp section).
  • /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf (set enabled=true in xdmcp section).

I cannot telnet into this machine (the ip is internal: 192.168.0.101) via domain name or ip address. I can hit it with FTP but it will not allow any of my usernames.

When I was using FreeBSD (which I could not get X running at all -- so I switched to Fedora), I could go to /etc/rc.d/inetd and make these changes. This isn't happening in Fedora.

I've found a directory /etc/xinetd.d, but I can't seem to find the files I need to modify.

Any assistance in this area would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Clay H.

Havn't completey worked all this out yet, but got it working on FC3 by

1) following instructions on http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO...dure.html#PREP

2) using Ctrl+Alt+BackSpace to kill X-Server and then Ctrl+Alt+F1 to access console

3) logging in and they running "startx"

Then it works! (The startx command must run different X start-up scripts to normal boot)

Cheers

Alistair

Sanctuary much!
Thank you very much!

It worked after the first step. I got an Xconsole without a Window Manager. Then I shut down the Windows box for the night. I came in the next day and started it up, I got the X screen (with the X mouse cursor) and three checkboxes in the upper right corner. There was no Xterm (like there was the night before). I clicked the mouse, hoping to get the menu, but nothing appeared.

Is this why you had to use steps 2 & 3 above?

Thanks,
Clay

You can get XDCMP to work, as well as ftp and telnet, by going into the security level applet and disabling the firewall. This being an insecure solution I would recommend researching the solution eluded to in the fedora core release notes under the Package-Specific Notes/Base/openssh section.

I got it with my 1st try

Hi!

I have Fedora Core 3, and use gdm

I just follow the Procedure http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/XDMCP-HOWTO...dure.html#PREP
but I had to change the:

Quote:
ipchains -A input -p udp -i $extint --dport 177 -j ACCEPT
with

Quote:
iptables -I INPUT -p udp -i <YourEthInterface> --dport 177 -j ACCEPT
That step is very messed up, sometimes is better to Include than to Append...

I don't have ftp nor telnet on my server, I use SSH for remote console, so I skipped any ftp telnet stuff...
Once I finished the procedure and got my server on init 5 (check your /var/log/messages to see if it started ok) I went to my Windows machine with Cygwin/X and run:

Xwin -query 192.168.0.1

or

Xwin :<display number> -query 192.168.0.1

and that was it, I got my gdm login screen...

this is pretty cool!! and better than VNC...
