fresh install of RH 6.1, no changes from past installs.

selected to run in 5 w/X and use KDE.

all other servers under this setup seem to run gdm, but this one is running kdm and using ReflectionX to make a remote X log on tells me the station is not willing to be managed!

Any advice... I am not really sure where to look.

Thanks,
Frank

KDM uses some of the xdm config files. Look in /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess and try to figure out how this config file works.

Do you have a line

RefXhostname   # empty right hand side

or even

*              # empty right hand side

If not, put the first example there.

Your welcome.

If the windows box has a static IP-number then use the upper, more specific one. I don't know your network situation, but you probabely don't want to have the whole LAN being able to "see" your linux box like that.
