I manage about 5 different Linux servers all of an identical
configuration running XFree86 4.0.3 and KDE 2.1.2 for its windowing
system. My desktop also has these running.
I have seen some xdm screens with a drop down box that contains a list
of servers that you can select at log in time, and I though it would
be great if I could log into the servers I manage from my desktop
machine using KDM.
I have looked around and it appears that I want to set up XDMCP on the
servers I have altered the /etc/X11/xdn/Xaccess file so that it reads
"* # any host can get a login window" and restarted KDM.
If I use the command from a terminal within my local X windows "
bash~~ X :1 -query <remote-server-ip> " X windows loads up, but
doesn't load a log in screen or window manager, I just get the famous
I still can't log on to the servers remotely though, and I don't know
how to make KDM list the servers in a drop down box, I believe that it
has something to do with XDM/Chooser.
Please can someone help, as the HOW-TO's are pretty sparse in regards
