How do I setup XDMCP server in RHL8.0

 
Hi

I have a windows 98 machine and in that I have installed X manager. Now I have a linux machine which is having Red Hat Linux 8.0 (Aquamarine). It is having a GUI login.

Now I tried to make it into an XDMCP server using XDMCP how to but in the middle of it also I was confused. The problem is that what is the display manager for the login screen itself. I know that when a user logins he can choose his display manager. But where do I do modifications so that it becomes an XDMCP server and after this also my X manager is not showing it in the detected system.

How do i convert it.

And secondly why is there no XDMCP GUI configuration tool available in Linux 8.0

And what are the other options by which I can get my GUI from an X server

and can the same thing be done with windows?

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated ...

RedHat 8.0 supports a "gdmsetup" command for XDMCP configuration.

For manual configuraion, please read FAQ #2 at:

We hope this can help you.
