xdm-shadow anyone ?

Post by Michael Buchenried » Mon, 10 Jul 1995 04:00:00


has anybody got a xdm-shadow binary ? Running with X11R6 ?
Or any hint where to find one ?
This is beginning to drive me nuts...

Regards (thanks again, Kevin!)

1. xdm-shadow listens to some port


It seems that xdm-shadow listens to some random port and the same applies for all processes started under xdm-shadow. Does anybody know whether this is a security problem? Is there any way to avoid it?

Currently, no other host can access the display or get a login window (/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess).

Many thanks in advance.
