server busy

Xmanager has been working flawlessly on our linux network for over a year, even after changing OS (RH 8 to 9, Win ME to Win2000). Suddenly, a problem pops up:

When starting an xdm session I get from the Broadcast Chooser "...(Server is busy)" What does this mean?

Re: server busy

The message ?Server is busy? in Broadcast Chooser is caused because the value for ?DisplayPerHost? in the GDM configuration is set to 1 by default.

Please perform the followings:

1. Open /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file
2. Go to the [xdmcp] section
3. Set the value of ?Enable? option to ?1?
4. Set the value of ?DisplayPerHost? option to desired maximum number such as 10
5. Restart the server

Hope this can help you.
