I am running Cygwin 1.7 on Win7 Pro x64, and I can query my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server just fine.
XWin.exe -clipboard -once -rootless -nodecoration -notrayicon -query $IP_ADDRESS
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 with XFCE desktop on another machine, and I cannot connect to this one.
Of course, I enabled TCP and XDMCP in LightDM using /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
[SeatDefaults] # ... xserver-allow-tcp=true [XDMCPServer] enabled=true
and I think the fact that I can connect using my Xubuntu 11.10 laptop proves that it works.
X -query $IP_ADDRESS :1
Xwin fails to connect, while logging something like:
[333305.324] XDMCP fatal error: Session failed Failed to connect to display :0 [333305.324] [333305.324] Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
Today I updated Cygwin.
CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10
Still doesn't work. Does anyone have a clue as to what 'feature' the new and improved LightDM or Xserver has that I forgot to take into account?
Oh and did I mention the exact same Cygwin/Xwin connects to Ubuntu 10.04 just fine, using the same command line (different IP of course)?
