Re: XWin/xdmcp fails after PC domain change
I have just now solved the problem. Apparently during the domain
join/unjoin the DNS Suffix in System Properties>Computer Settings was
removed leaving just the host name of the PC. Replacing the DNS suffix
of my internal domain name fixed the problem. Not sure why??? Perhaps
a DNS issue - Dynamic Updates issue maybe???
To answer your question, yes I did try the "-from localipaddress" option
which had no effect. Once again not sure why.
Perhaps a list member with more knowledge can clarify.
Thanks for the suggestion

Any help would be appreciated and I've RTFM'd and searched the archives. ;-)
Have you tried the -from <localipaddress> parameter? This tells XWin which
network interface to use.
OTOH i have no idea why a domain change could change anything in Cygwin/X.
Maybe some user settings like TEMP location have changed or its just the
network setting which changed.
