Re: xdmcp and "X terminals"

Hopes this helps:

   $ man Xserver
	  X servers that support XDMCP have the  following  options.
	  See  the  X Display Manager Control Protocol specification
	  for more information.

	  -query host-name
		  Enable XDMCP and send Query packets to the  speci­
		  fied host.

		  Enable  XDMCP and broadcast BroadcastQuery packets
		  to the network.  The first responding display man­
		  ager will be chosen for the session.
