I have installed Cygwin/X on my desktop (WIN XP Professional) and I have tried to connect via XDMCP to a Linux AS 2.1 machine typing the command:

Xwin.exe :0 -query remote_ip_address

the result was a grey screen and I didn't receive the login window.

Looking at the FAQ document I have followed the suggestion modifying the /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc file enabling Xdmcp:



but I didn't get a different result.

Have you any additional suggestion in order to make the XDMCP conenction working?

Thanks in advance
