My net configuration is fairly simple. It is a local 10Base-T with
4 systems on it(Win2k, linux and 2 Win98). The Win2k is the
firewall to Starband sat connection. The thur-put is around 75% 800Kbyte
per seconds in both directions. Other network applications works flawlessly
include XWin32 if I start it without XDMCP. Spray from Linux has
zero packet drop as well.

Sorry about that it is 10Mbit. I been around this type of network for
years and most of the time I can smell a network problem. I think the
simple answer is that I don't understand xdmcp very well and I have
something configured wrong. I have been able to get a XDMCP login
for a while. I just bounced the Linux server in hopes that will help.
It seems to have help. I will keep you posted.
Also I am using static IPs for the local area.
thanks for all your help.
