                /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
For KDM: /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc
                /usr/share/kdm/kdmrc
                /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc

2. Go to the [xdmcp] section.
3. Set the value of "Enable" option to "1".

1. vi /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config
2. Comment out "request port" option as following:
DisplayManager.requestPort: 0
?
! DisplayManager.requestPort: 0
3. vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess
4. Remove the initial "#" character for the following line:
#* #any host can get a login window
?
* #any host can get a login window
5. vi /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc, /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc or
etc/opt/kde2/share/config/kdm/kdmrc file
6. Change the value of "Enable" option to "true"
Step 4. Firewall configuration (If a firewall has been configured)
4. vi /etc/sysconfig/ipchains
4. Add the following lines at the top of the file:

-A input -p udp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 177 -j ACCEPT
-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 telnet -j ACCEPT
-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 ssh -j ACCEPT
-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 login -j ACCEPT
-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 exec -j ACCEPT
-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 shell -j ACCEPT
