I've got a number of Windows XP boxes that want X11 access to a Suse host.
I've performed the following steps:

Install vnc on Suse

create /etc/xinetd.d/Xvnc containing:
Service Xvnc
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/bin/Xvnc
server_args = -inetd :10 -query localhost -once -geometry
1024x768 -depth 16
port = 5901

under /etc/sysconfig/displaymanger, I have the following set:

Firewall is off

Xaccess allows broadcast, and to any host

kdmrc has the xdmcp stanza enable=true and port=177

restart xinetd and X11 but can't remotely connect.
Get Connection refused.

Same results with locally running vncviewer localhost:10

Sadly, same message is mimicked in syslog; nothing else.

What steps am I missing?
