Xephyr/Xnest - all I can get is a weave pattern instead of remote desktop
 
I'm trying to display the desktop of a remote xubuntu dapper machine on my local debian etch desktop but all I can get is a window with a weave pattern. Both machines are on the same subnet (my home network) behind a firewall.

I've tried several incantations to get at the remote desktop. Here are some examples:

Xephyr :1 -query xubuntu_machine
Xephyr :10 -indirect xubuntu_machine
Xnest :10 -query xubuntu_machine

On the remote xubuntu machine in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf in the XDMCP section I have
enable=true
and also tried HonorIndirect=true

I'm not sure, but after enabling xdmcp should netstat show listening on port 177?

Am I doing this all wrong?
