But too slow via Internet/VPN.

Xming was the one I was thinking of. I used it at work a couple of
years ago with openSUSE 11.4.

How is it possible to get XDMCP to work with 13.1? I have a couple of
systems running it here and they can't even see each other in the list
when trying to run a remote session. I have been using XDMCP for years,
but not since I switched to 12.x and now 13.1.

could not live without it.. many thin clients running on this server..

xorg-x11-server-7.6_1.13.2-1.21.1.x86_64
xdm-1.1.10-14.10.1.x86_64

I'm using later versions with 13.1
from the update repo

this is my config on 12.3
-tell me if i forgot something essential-

/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"
I'm using KDM
didn't manage to get xdmcp work with kdm or gdm in 12.x, but no problem with xdm
DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS="yes"
Yes
DISPLAYMANAGER_ROOT_LOGIN_REMOTE="no"
DISPLAYMANAGER_STARTS_XSERVER="yes"
DISPLAYMANAGER_XSERVER_TCP_PORT_6000_OPEN="yes"
It's set to no. The configuration says it should only be used when
necessary and on trusted networks. I have never had to change this.
it is blocked on untrusted networks using iptables.
without this enabled no xdmcp connections can be opened.
this is the only port X listens on:
netstat -tulpe | grep /X
tcp 0 0 *:6000 *:* LISTEN root 80449 13576/X
tcp 0 0 *:6000 *:* LISTEN root 80448 13576/X
