Using XDM

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Has anyone had any success with setting up any of the X11 distros to handle XDMCP requests? I've tried Fink's and XFree86 distros and Apple's X11, and can successfully get an XDM login window, but cannot log in. Whenever I try I get an authentication failure for any of the accounts on the XDM host. I've set up the server as per:
    I've also tried Fink's GDM package, and that behaves similarily.

    Is there some configuration option I'm missing?
