Free XDMCP client for windows?


Hello... I searched around on google, there isn't much information on XDMCP clients for windows.

What I want is a freeware based XDMCP client that basically does what X-WIN32 does.

(Description of xwin: This X terminal software allows PC users to connect their Microsoft Windows systems to powerful X Window System applications residing on Unix and Linux servers. If you are new to using an X server, you may want to browse through this Help system to learn more about new features, frequently asked questions, and to gain quick access to needed information.)

Is there any free alternative to these expensive XDMCP software programs?


I've considered VNC, it's not exactly what I'm looking for.

I want to use the XDMCP feature in xwindows and connect to the xwindow enviroment through my windows box.

Thanks ;-)

Still nothing?

I've also searched linuxforums, searched again through google with no results... ugh.

SURELY there would be a gnu, open source, or even free and closed source version of a program like this for Windows?

Nobody has *ever* heard of anything but those expensive ones for windows??

Thanks

and someone PLEASE reply this time!! :-)

MobaXTerm is free, portable, & has the ability to connect via XDMCP with no effort at all (unless u consider typing an IP effort). There's no real setup, and no configuration involved at all on the client side.

In X windows they reverse the client and server names. A server is what we would think of as a remote unit.

Do you mean to have a xdmcp chooser?


See also NX, freenx, 2x also.


For a server on windows xming is good if you have the configured fonts both ends.

If you want you can try an old live cd that is not really a live cd at all but a cd that can be used on a windows system to try your setup. A bit old. http://xlivecd.indiana.edu/

I'm referring to having an X server running on the windows box & displaying a full desktop -or- single application from the *nix box utilizing the X server running on windows. Regardless of what you term it, it's free, tiny, lightweight, requires no setup at all. Running the X server is automatic, but controlled via a single button on/off. And the act of connecting to the *nix box involved clicking a button and inputting an IP. Or you can interface directly with the CLI which includes much of the Cygwin project's tools.

I've tried NX,freenx & 2x. MobaXterm to me is just so much easier it's ridiculous.

I didn't actually mean you grep65535. I don't know what the OP actually wanted. MobaXterm does look good.
