Re: Xming XDMCP

Noticed the LOGIN prompt is different using Excursion XDMCP (not full X window but small borderless white window). Full X window only appears after Login - could this me causing Xming a problem?

No, the XDM login screen is normal (built into XDM server), it certainly is not the reason for xming not working.

I'm not sure if I have xming access control off using the xming configuration file, through the XLaunch menu it is not possible.
Can check tomorrow how my setup looks like (no MS WIN at home :-)

Re: Xming XDMCP

I checked my Xming setup on WinXP, and I see nothing concerning display protection in Xmingrc.
Using 'blank" XLaunch, also no access control flag.
Maybe the defaults of Xming have changed. Just use Xming setup menu once , SAVE the config, and then add in the saved file before the closing "/>":

NoAccessControl="true"

And start using the saved config to see if it now works.

Re: Xming XDMCP

Got it working - You are right it was the Access Control.
When I use Xming Xlaunch Edit even though Access Control greyed out, there is an additional parameters line where I put "-ac"
Thanks
