Re: xdmcp connection failed

 
Is the "dtlogin" process running on AIX?
If then, you can get some hints from the /var/dt/Xerrors file.

I doubt that the "dtlogin" process is running on your AIX box. To enable it, run the following commands at the console of AIX:

# dtconfig -e
# dtconfig -reset

Then, try to add the PC IP address to /etc/hosts of AIX. An error in the DNS settings may cause such a problem.

Mandrake 9.1 has a problem in using KDM. If it is the case, you should upgrade to Mandrake 9.2.

Otherwise, use GDM instead of MDKKDM.
To configure Mandrake for GDM:

1. Log on to the Linux console.
2. Click the "Click the "start menu->Configuration->Mandrake Control Center-Qt>hardware->display manager chooser" in sequence.
3. Select GDM.

Hope this helps you.
