It's not clear to me exactly what you're after. XDM is typically what
gets you credentials in the first place, i.e. you log in locally with
your Kerberos password and get a ticket with which you can access
If you want to start an X session on a remote machine, why not do it
directly using SSH to start vncserver rather than via XDM?
If you need to use, say, vncviewer to connect to a system that is
running xdm and exporting the console through VNC, how would you
expect the client to interact with xdm?
