X Login via XDMCP over an SSH tunnel
Authored by: cynikal on Nov 19, '04 05:57:29PM

the blue screen likely means you can connect, but an xdmcp agent may not be running out-of-the-box.. if you couldn't connect at all, you'd likely just get an entire gray screen instead of even blue (unless blue is that system's default color). you may want to run a port scanner on your udp port 177 to check if there's an xdmcp daemon listening on that port.
