I'm not sure if this applys here, but:
i found that my xdm variant here (kdm) has the option SourceAdress. Setting this to true solved my need for -from.

# Whether KDM should listen to XDMCP requests. Default is true.
# Use the numeric IP address of the incoming connection instead of the
# host name. Use this on multihomed hosts. Default is false
