I tried starting from the command line, and typing the code in that you suggested.  No luck with either suggestion.  No users are showing up as logged in.  Again, I am logged in as root on the server itself, and am logged in as myself on one of my thin clients.  My thin clients are DevonIT units.  I am using a Dell Optiplex 745 as my K12LTSP server, with one nic.  When I try "yum update fl_teachertool" at the command line it says that it can't find a update match.  I'm stumped!

do you get any error messages when run from the command line?

also try copy pasting the following line into a terminal and see what you get

netstat -t -e|grep x11|sed -e 's/:/ /g'|awk '{print $9,$6}'|grep -vw
root|grep -vw gdm|grep -vw kdm|grep -vw xdm|sort|uniq
