XDM to linux box questions

I am using cygwin/XFree86 on a Win2k computer to
communicate with my linux box (Slackware version). I
successfully configured both systems so that I was
able to log in via XDM into my linux box.

However, recently this has stopped working. My XDM
queries now go unanswered. I suspect that this has to
do with some Windows security updates that I had

The xdm logs in my linux box shows the following:
xdm error (pid 2339): server open failed for
dhcp024-210-231-236.woh.rr.com:0, giving up
xdm error (pid 81): Display
dhcp024-210-231-236.woh.rr.com:0 cannot be opened
xdm error (pid 81): Display
dhcp024-210-231-236.woh.rr.com:0 is being disabled

It sounds like the problem is in my Win2k machine. I
am not a Win2k expert, so I don't know where to look
for clues. Suggestions are appreciated.
