You are leaving all of the post you are replying to at the bottom of
your message, without there being an apparent need for any of it.
Please read a netiquette faq on proper email quoting. Thanks.

Try "netstat -at | grep xdm" on the pc running xdm. If xdm is not
listening to the network, then it is unlikely that the laptop xserver
ever gets a connection. Probably, you need to comment out the bottom
line of the /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config file on the pc acting as xdm server.
PS: instead of "*", better use "*.your.domain" in Xaccess.
