XDMCP connection failed


I connect to the internet via a router.

The router assigns several IPs to the computers in my own lan and provides me with ISDN access to the internet via my ISP.

When I start XManager I get the error "XDMCP connection failed". I think this can be due to the fact I'm using a router... any lights on this?

Re: XDMCP connection failed

If the router allocates a dynamic, private IP address, Xmanager cannot connect to the external Unix/Linux system. Actually the router is used as a firewall in this configuration.

Please contact your network administrator for more information on your network.

In a firewall environment, we recommend you using Xstart with SSH protocol. That can run an xterm or other X application through a secure channel.
