XDM + Xfce + VNC


Hi all, I have trouble with XMD + Xfce + VNC (Debian Wheezy). When I sit at the computer I see XDM login screen, and when I typing login information all is OK, I see Xfce desktop. But I need controlling this Linux PC with VNC. I install tightvncserver, set configuration files:

/etc/xinetd.d/vnc
Code:
service Xvnc
{
        disable = no
        socket_type = stream
        protocol = tcp
        wait = no
        user = nobody
        server = /usr/bin/Xvnc
        server_args = :1 -inetd -once -query localhost -geometry 1024x768 -dept 16
        type = UNLISTED
        port = 5901
}
/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
Code:
* #any host can get a login window
/etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config
Code:
!DisplayManager.requestPort:    0
/etc/services
Code:
Xvnc            5901/tcp                        # VNC & GDM
run
Code:
usermod -s /bin/bash nobody
And when I can connect with vncviewer (ip:1) from second PC (Windows), I see only gray screen with cursor (attach file) not XMD login screen.

Can you anybody help me?
Thanks

The problem was solved. I have used GDM login manager instead of XDM.

/etc/gdm/gdm.conf
Code:
[security]
DisallowTCP=false

[xdmcp]
Enable=true
