Your XDMCP patch for Win 95
Tue Dec 4 07:02:00 GMT 2001
I'm getting the error: "XDMCP Fatal error: Session declined with no
valid address". I can start an X session locally on the Win 95 box,
telnet to the LInux box and run X programs remotely that way. However,
If I use "XWin -query 192.168.1.1 -from 192.168.1.10" I get the error.
I've read all the previous posts about XDMCP problems but none of the
suggestions worked. I do have the Win95 machine name in the /etc/hosts
file and in the Xaccess file on the Linux box.
My other machines (Netpliance I-Openers) can connect fine using xdm.
They mount their entire filesystem over NFS and I assumed they are using
XDMCP to get the logon screen. Maybe something is still messed up with
my XDMCP configuration? Thanks for your help.
You don't need this patch anymore. It is in cygwin since 1.3.4.
I'll throw a comment to the page.
Did you have problems with xdmcp and the unpatched 1.3.6 cygwin?
What was it?
