Willing, but /etc/X11/xdm/Xwilling, failed

We are evaluating XManager, and we have run into the error in the title. However there are intresting twists. We have tried both suggestion already posted. That is the chmod 777.... in XWilling, and the commenting out of the line Willing=.....

Here's the twist. I can get to the Linux box from my PC (windows 2000 pro, with administrator access), and also another PC (Windows 98) with no problem (despite the error). My Boss (also administrator rights on his Windows 2000 pro box) though get's the list, he can't connect to the one box.

Any Ideas????

The problem might occur due to:

1. An incorrect DNS entry for the problem PC.
You can try to add the pc's name in /etc/hosts.
2. A firewall is active in the problem PC.
You should allow the incoming TCP 6000 ~ 6010 for Xmanager.

If the problem persists, provide us with Xmanager.log file in the Xmanager folder. Also, let us know about the Linux name and version.
