Remote X Session Help
I am having problems trying to access a remote x session at work. I have had this setup in the past but since a reinstall of Suse 9.3 it stops working and h'm at a loss on to how i get it working again.
i try the following "X -query hostname :1" which starts a new session but i just get a gray screen with an X cursor. i then get the following message displayed in the console;
"XDMCP Fatal error: Session failed for display: cannot open display"
I've tried connecting to several of our Linux boxes and i get the same problem.
Remote X capability is switched off by default in SUSE.
If you need xhost +hostname capability, you must edit your display manager configuration in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanger with a text editor or in YaST's /etc/sysconfig editor.
Also in /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
ssh -X is the preferred way of forwarding an X session.
VNC is another possibility.
