mint x64 kde and xdmcp

Postby gravitalsun » Sat Feb 25, 2012 6:41 pm

I am trying to configure mind KDE x64 to accept connections using the xdmcp protocol with no success so far.
Port 177 is not listening at all. I have configure my files as following. Please help.

/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

Code: Select all

...
[Xdmcp]
Enable=true
Port=177
Willing=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xwilling
Xaccess=/etc/kde4/kdm/Xaccess
...


/etc/kde4/kdm/Xaccess

Code: Select all

...
*                                       #any host can get a login window
*               CHOOSER BROADCAST       #any indirect host can get a chooser
...


/etc/sysctl.conf

Code: Select all

...
net.inet6.ip6.v6only = 0
...

are you sure port 177 is really open or not ?

Check your X server :

ps -ef | grep Xorg
if you see -nolisten tcp , that's the issue.

If you don't see it, check if there is something listening : telnet <your-external-ip-adress> 177

As it's a UDP port, your won't have any response just nothing. If it's closed, you'll see "Connection refused"

Solved. I had to configure both files

Code: Select all

/etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintSystem/adjustments/kde/kdmrc
I know it is crazy but after that I have xdmcp working.
