Xbrowser is a web browser, so what do you call 'connect to a box':
-the box is a webserver and you want to display its web content? Try to read a tutorial on apache or whatever webserver you're using.
-you want to open a remote session so use the proper tool: ssh, svn...

Thanks for your response.
Xbrowser is an interface program for browsing remote Linux/Unix machines which support XDMCP connections.

While browsing i found that, With RHEL5, there is a gui called gdmsetup.
The config file in RHEL5 is /etc/gdm/custom.conf to configure xdm
