I am facing a problem in XServer. I have one Linux RH9 OS and others are win2k.
From one PC I am able to log onto the linux using an Xserver and XDMCP
even if i log off and relog on it works fine.
now From another pc when i try to log on it gives the following message
XDMCP:Session declined:Maximum number of open sessions from your host reached
now if I try to relog on from the machine where i was able to log on I am able to log on but after a considerable delay

I suppose there is some setting in the linux machine.
any clues? I need an answer urgently

Hi bhagyesht,

look in /etc/X11/ directory ... there will be a gdm.conf file in this directory or one of its sub dirs ... as far as I remember, this value was configured in that file ...

The file has enough comments to help you make changes ... sorry its been quite sometime since I admin'ed a *nix machine so cant remember the parameter name

Cheers!

Well I solved it.
This is how I did it.
In the security on the windows X server I had used Access control I unchecked that.
In the XDMCP I increased "Displays per host" and "Maximum remote sessions"
and restarted the system. but since shivsa and Sunny had written abt it before I could post it on EE points to you both
