XDMCP problem thru the gdm ??

The following doesn't exit at all on previous version, on sarge (debian) I used last year, but it on the current version etch (debian).

the problem is:
I have a serveur running the standard etch (debian ) with gnome, I configured the Login window and check (activate) the XDMCP. My server is not visible from a remote client.
Is there a new thing in gdm or gnome ( or in debian ???) which can stop the Xdmcp protocol ??

I did same procedure on previous release, without problem!!!!!

I don't know if it is a gnome problem ( because I noticed same problem with Fedora 5) or debian problem.

thanks for help
best regards

You have to put Enable in the section xdmcp of /etc/gdm/gdm.conf , like this:
+ when gdm starts, click on the settings option (can't remember the name, not Session) there are some things to activate.
To check if xdmcp is running, type
 netstat -a | grep xdmcp
If it shows *:xdmcp, it's working fine.
