XDMCP and TCP wrapper

Last modified: Wednesday, December 2, 2015 9:21 AM


In order for Xmanager to connect via XDMCP , UNIX/Linux machines utilize XDM daemon's UDP port 177. Therefore, configuration in the TCP Wrapper is not possible. However, if using GDM hosts.deny and hosts.allow may be used.


/etc/hosts.allow/etc/hosts.deny files should be configured as such:

*:*     > Deny service to all hosts

gdm:* > Allow  GDMservice to all  hosts
