Something really strange happens when I do a xhost + command. The X
display is immediately taken over by the xdmcp login window to my
Mandrake Linux machine on the LAN. I can then login to the KDE and do
anything I can on the local display. In a way this is good news since
I've been trying to get xdmcp to work using "XWin.exe -query
remote_host_ip -from local_host_ip" with only partial success.
This leads me to beleive there's a bug in XWin when using xdmcp realting
to client access to the server. xhost + "fixes" the access problem, but
causes the strange result of displaying the remote login screen.
Or am I just missing something basic? Could someone let me know if
there is a logical explanation for this.
