Re: Remote KDE desktop?

Thank you, it almost works.

When I do the "Remote Login" it has my server listed under Hostname.
Under Status is says "Display not authorized to connect"
When I try to select it, I go back to the logon screen.
Is there something else I need to change?

What do I need to do to bring up the KDE from the server on the computer in my office?

On the server, edit the file /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc - this controls the KDM display server. Look for
the section headed [Xdmcp] and change the line which says Enable=false to Enable=true

Then restart KDM on the server with:

invoke-rc.d kdm restart

Now on the desktop, at your KDM login screen, you can select "Remote Login". If your server and
desktop are on the same IP network, you should see the server listed in the remote login screen.
Otherwise you may have to enter the hostname or IP by hand.
