XDMCP connection failed


I am having Linux 7.0 installed with Gnome and KDE. I am able to connect to it using Telnet via XManager but the problem is.......the desktop is not coming. Error message is 'XDMCP connection failed . Try again ?.

Please read FAQ #2 at:


And also you need to check if an xdm is running in your Linux box:

# ps -aux | grep dm

A kdm or gdm should be running to use XDMCP service.
