XDMCP error nothing works

 
How to configure Linux XDMCP(KDE/GNOME) settings for Xmanager

Affected Files

For runlevel: /etc/inittab
For GDM: /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf
For KDM: /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config
/etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
/etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc
/usr/share/kdm/kdmrc
/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
/etc/opt/kde2/share/config/kdm/kdmrc
For Firewall: /etc/sysconfig/ipchains

Step 1. Change runlevel to enable gdm or kdm.

Open /etc/inittab file.
Change the runlevel to 5 as following:

id:5:initdefault:
Step 2. GDM configuration (When the Linux is using gdm)

Open /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf file.
Go to the [xdmcp]section.
Set the value of "Enable" option to "1".
Step 3. KDM configuration (When the Linux is using kdm)

Open /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config file.
Comment out "requestPort" option as following:
DisplayManager.requestPort: 0
==>
!DisplayManager.requestPort: 0
Open /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess file.
Remove the initial "#" character for the following line:
#* #any host can get a login window
==>
* #any host can get a login window
Open /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc, /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc or /etc/opt/kde2/share/config/kdm/kdmrc file.
Change the value of "Enable" option to "true".


i did all the above changes suggested somehow i cant see this option in that file

Open /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc, /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc or /etc/opt/kde2/share/config/kdm/kdmrc file.
Change the value of "Enable" option to "true".
