-inetd option with RH7.2

Forgive my asking but are you sure you are using kdm and not some other
display manager like gdm, xdm, etc.?  It is possible to be running KDE
2.2 desktop w/ some other display manager underneath I believe.  If you
are running gdm you can run gdmconfig (GUI front end to gdm config file)
to enable XDMCP.  I need to submit a clarification to
sourcecodecorner.com.

If you are *sure* you are running kdm ( `ps -A | grep dm` ), then I
need to do some digging.  It has been a while since I setup my RH 7.2
box.  The RH 7.2 machine I had is now running Debian and my other box is
RH 7.1.  If you are sure you are running kdm and it isn't working
(hopefully someone else will have better insight) I will bring my RH 7.1
box to up to 7.2 and work through it with you.

Keep us posted.

I am having trouble getting vnc to work with the -inetd option and
would
appreciate some assistance.  I am a relative newbie so your patience
is
appreciated.  I have searched the archives for several hours before
this.

I have a fresh installation of RH7.2 (also tried RH7.1), using KDE
2.2.
Starting vncserver from the console works fine.  Between old archive
entries
and Jeff Vencent's faq on sourcecodecorner.com I have tried to setup
Xvnc from
xinetd.

I only get a grey screen on the viewer (no login/password), which Jeff
seems
to indicate should be a problem with xdmcp.  I checked UDP port 177
with nmap
as suggested and it's closed so I guess that's the problem.

I have changed these 2x lines in kdmrc (previously commented out):
[Xdmcp]
Enable=true
Port=177

and for Xaccess I uncommented one line to read:
any host can get a login windows

previously '#*                #any host can get a login window'

Also commented out 'DisplayManager.requestPort: 0' in xdm-config.
All other lines the original defaults supplied with RH7.2 apart from
the new
entries in services and xinetd.

What have I missed?
