I think I have followed all the directions, but all I get is a
blank X screen with a pointer cursors.

The request doesn't seem to be getting to the Linux system.

I did a "tcpdump port 117" and I don't see any packets at all going
to Linux.  

In the docs it says to change gdm.conf


but all the other options have the Boolean true so I followed suit.


I did do a netstat to make sure xdm was listening on the correct port.

Is it possible that Xwin.exe is sending to a different port?
