enabling xdmcp

Hello,

I made the following changes on my linux server.

/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
DISPLAYMANAGER=“kdm”
DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS=“yes”
DISPLAYMANAGER_ROOT_LOGIN_REMOTE="yes"

The above values were “no” initially.

I commented this line in /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config
!DIsplayManager.requestPort: 0
It was uncommented initially

the file /opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc has the following:
Enable=true
Port=177
Xaccess=/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
Willing=/etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling

The “Enable” was set to “false” and the “Port=177” was commented out initally.

/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess shows this:

  • #any host can get a login window

Then I rebooted the server. I don’t see xdmcp listening on port 177 when I do a netstat. Should I do anything else? Have I missed any other settings? Should I do any thing with any startup scripts?

Thanks,
soft-e

You don’t say what version of openSUSE you are running. Looks like you are running KDE3 so an older version? Mine 11.2’s sysconfig is the same as yours except that I set DISPLAYMANGER to kdm4. BTW xdmcp is UDP port 177, not TCP.

Hi
Did you add xdmcp to the Allowed Services in the firewall?

I would imagine you won’t see anything occur until you try a query.

I can’t find the Allowed Services option. I tried. I clicked on YAST, then clicked on Security and Users, and then clicked on Firewall. Firewall Configuration Step 1 of 4: Basic settings. I can’t see Allowed Services anywhere

Hi
Is your firewall off and not configured?
You should see something like;
