Can't Get XDMCP Login on Mandrake 9.0 Box from XP
Sun Jan 26 04:04:00 GMT 2003
Harold, I did set "Enable=True" in the kdmrc file.
Per the XDMCP-HOWTO, I also set Port=177, and I note now that the Willing=
keword is blank.
Was I not supposed to set Port=177? Should I set "Willing=" to some other
Thanks for the response.
