#ps -ef|grep gdm

#iptables -L |grep -i gdm
( nothing in the output )

This is a wrong forum for you.

even now doesn't give me exact version name.

gdm configuration differs from version to version.

Re: X Windows

First off how are you planning to access the oracle server ? I'll assume you wish a full gnome session in which case by default gdm has xdmcp switched off :

see /etc/gdm/gdm.conf ref http://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2002/04/msg00653.html

ensure hostname resolution work between server and pc, run exceed and set the connection type to xdmcp broadcast .... is the remore oracle server shown in the list of available hosts ?

anything under Exceed -> Trouble-shooting : ie log files ?

Re: X Windows

in gdm.conf file locate [xdmcp] section and there enable like this

Enable=true

then restart machine or restart gdm

gdm-restart

I've asked the moderators to move this thread to linux.
