XDMCP connection failed from window 2000 Pro

 
The linux box (running RedHat 8.0) can be accessed from a PC running Window Pro Home. However, it failed from Window 2000 Pro.

There are some hints:
1. I can ping the linux box from window 2000 Pro, and vice versa.
2. I can see the linux box from XBrowser with correct IP address.
3. there is an error message in the log file (detailed attached below)

Xdmcp: sent a MANAGE message.
Xdmcp: Timed out, state 8. Retransmissions: 3

Can anybody help?

Many thanks.

Stephen

Re: XDMCP connection failed from window 2000 Pro

 
The problem may occur when:
  • The DNS system in Linux maps the IP address of your W2k into an incorrect name, or vice versa. You need to check the DNS lookup tables to verify it.
  • The firewall system in your W2k is enabled and incoming connections are not allowed. You should be able to ping 2000 Pro from the Linux box.
Hope to solve the problem.
