X terminals that support XDMCP
If the X terminal does support XDMCP, use the
following procedure. Note that you do not need to
configure the Xservers file in this situation.
Configure the X terminal to use XDMCP. While
there are three ways you can do this, the most
common method is mentioned first:
Set the display manager access parameter to ``Direct''
and specify the IP address of the machine on
which scologin will be running.
This method transmits a Query packet directly to the
specified host machine.
Set the terminal's display manager access parameter to
``Broadcast.'' This method broadcasts a query
packet, to which one or more hosts may respond. Depending
on how your X terminal functions, the display can request
management from the host that responds first or it can
provide a list of available hosts and allow you to pick one.
Set the display manager access parameter to ``Indirect.''
This method transmits a query packet to an intermediate
host, which relays it to another host.
Verify that scologin is running on the host machine
with the /etc/scologin query command.
Enter /etc/scologin start to start the display
manager if it is not already running.
Restart the server session on the X terminal. The
scologin window displays on the X terminal's screen.
